Submission + - Richard Branson plans orbital spaceships for Virgin Galactic (foxnews.com)

Velcroman1 writes: Following the historic first rocket-powered flight of its SpaceShipTwo vehicle, Virgin Galactic plans to build a fleet of spaceships and begin ferrying hundreds of tourists into space in 2014. 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?
