Branson confident Virgin Galactic flotation will mean more spaceships



Virgin Galactic is to become the world’s first and only publicly traded commercial human spaceflight company.

It joined the space race ahead of Blue Origin and Space X with two spaceships and the boss hopes the funding could mean more in the future.

Sir Richard Branson told Sky’s Ian King: “I think we are slightly ahead of our competitors.”

More than 600 people have already paid deposits to go on the flights into space.
