Do you have a spare $1,000 kicking around? If so, why not use it to do something absolutely out of this world? Literally. As in become an astronaut. And, to tell you more about it, I chose it as the old fart’s top tech and gadget story for today. You see, Virgin Galactic is offering people the chance to give flight to fantasy, and to experience the world’s newest amusement activity; rocketing into space. And that there’s something that someone alive when mankind first left Earth never thought that he’d live to see.
Virgin Galactic Closed Its Doors To New Sales In 2018
The company formally closed its doors to new ticket sales after its history-making first spaceflight in December 2018, but has just announced that in preparation for the re-opening of spaceflight sales, it’s introducing the ‘One Small Step initiative’, its next tranche of seats for sale to the general public The initiative allows those who are serious about flying to space the opportunity to place a $1,000 deposit on a space flight, in order to be at the front of line for ‘firm seat reservations’, once they become available to purchase.
Deposits Have Been Placed By Customer in 60 Countries
So, in light of continuing, strong progress towards commercial service, Virgin Galactic says the deposits will be in addition to the more than 600 firm reservations it has already. And interest is intense, coming from potential ‘Virginauts’ (astronauts) in 60 countries, and a consistently high level of interest from aspiring astronauts. This has resulted in 7,957 online reservation registrations in the fourteen months since the first spaceflight, and more than double the number that the Company reported in September 2019.
Now this old fart’s so close to a suit-less space flight of his own that it don’t sound all that appealing to me, but if you happen to have yourself a $1,000 laying about all lonely like, and without purpose, you can either make a reservation to make a reservation to reserve a place in history, or, you can just send it right on over to me. Either way, I guarantee you that it’s sure to provide someone with an experience that’s just right the heck out of this world.
