Space Cruise!!!

Cruise magnate Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Cruise lines has announced that he will start a suborbital passenger service using vehicles based on Rutans Spaceship One. The first such vessel, the VSS Enterprise will be built next year!

At just over $200,000 a ticket he expects to give 3000 people their astronaut wings in 5 years!

Three-quarters of a metric butt-ton of links on the subject here.
