Will you buy one? Ever since the independent space agency finished its spaceflight system, the company wanted to send Earthlings outside the planet’s orbit. 

Virgin Galactic’s first commercial flight successfully brought Richard Branson, the founder of the Virgin Group, into outer space. 

Now, the space company wants to conduct more commercial spaceflights so that more non-astronaut people can reach Earth’s orbit.

According to Engadget‘s latest report, Virgin Galactic is inviting 1,000 individuals to become its passengers this 2022.

“We plan to have our first 1,000 customers on board at the start of commercial service later this year, providing an incredibly strong foundation as we begin regular operations and scale our fleet,” said Michael Colglazier, the current Virgin Galactic CEO. 

If you have enough budget to purchase the $450,000 ticket, you need to remember that there’s still a $150,000 initial deposit.

Virgin Galactic Ticket’s Inclusions

Business Wire reported that Virgin Galactic’s tickets could provide you with lots of benefits. If you make a reservation, the space agency will allow you access to the Future Astronaut membership community. 

Once you are included in this community, you will experience spaceflight adventure even before the actual launches take place. 

On the other hand, they can also experience some exciting events exclusive to Virgin Galactic passengers. These activities will allow them to prepare themselves before their actual spaceflights physically. 

If you are interested, you can start making a reservation on Wednesday, Feb. 16. 

In July 2021, the Virgin Galactic got suspended due to a dangerous mission. In the same year, Virgin Galactic’s president previously announced that the U.K. should invest more in space explorations.
