Era Of Space Tourism Officially Announced Open By Virgin Galactic



Virgin Galactic
Virgin Galactic officially announced that next year they will start the space tourism flights. The flights are scheduled once a week, with 7 astronauts flying at a time. There are already around 550 people who paid the modest amount of $200,000 to experience three days of training at Spaceport America, 62 miles flight and six minutes of weightlessness. That will bring $110 million to the company and huge emissions of black carbon (soot), alterations in the atmospheric circulation and ozone distribution, as well as possible increase in polar surface temperature by 1 degree Celsius, and polar sea ice reduction by up to 15 percent, if there will be over 1,000 space flight a year.
