And I have to mention Richard Branson; one of the richest guys in the world, owner of Virgin Records, Virgin MegaStores, Virgin Airlines, pretty much anything with the Virgin name on it. Well, he's just formed a new company called Virgin Galactic, which'll be the first private space tourism company. Virgin's ships will be designed by Bert Rutan and based on Rutan's SpaceShipOne. You may remember SpaceShipOne's test flight back in the spring; it's one of the X-Prize hopefuls. Virgin Galactic hopes to send up its first 3000 space travellers within 5 years.
