And then? A whole new kind of spacecraft, Sir Richard Branson said. “We’ll be building orbital spaceships after that,” Branson told Fox News Tuesday, "so that people who want to go for a week or two can.” Assuming the cost is on the same scale, would you pay a few hundred grand for a few weeks in orbit?
