Virgin Galactic is one of the Richard Branson's Virgin Group's latest projects under development. He and Chris Anderson, Curator of TED and an Entrepreneur himself, discussed Branson's latest investment of creating a sub-orbital space ship open to a public who can afford this out-of -this world- luxury.  Once ready to take off, anyone can buy a ticket to space for about $200,000 per person with a $20,000 deposit.

The spacecraft seats six passengers with an additional two piloted seats in the front.  The craft projects to travel about 21,000 miles surpassing the Earth's atmosphere.  Have a watch at the long version of the animated demo below featured in the TED Talk with Richard Branson in 2007 (See HERE or Below).
