Who is Richard Branson going to space with?

  • Published by Vedat
Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson will have a trip to outer space when they ride the SpaceShipTwo rocket plane next year. But he won't be alone.

richard-branson-virginBranson, the British-born chairman of the Virgin Group, has been saying for years that he'd be on Virgin Galactic's first passenger spaceflight with his family. But now the reality is settling in — not just for the 63-year-old billionaire, but also for his two children: 31-year-old Holly and 28-year-old Sam.

Richard Branson and his children will be on the first passenger flight to suborbital space, just beyond Earth’s atmosphere. Branson’s company will begin offering commercial flights in 2014.
