The Space Ship Two, which will be able to transport six space tourists and two pilots, will be completed in the coming months and it is expected that in 2009 the first test flights and the first trips with space tourists will begin. The initial frequency will be one departure per week, although the two daily trips are expected to be achieved gradually.

Although its suborbital flights will take off initially from the space airport In Mojave, Virgin Galactic plans to build a new one in the State of New Mexico, designed by British architect Norman Foster, which will become its base of operations from 2010. The company does not rule out building new airports in others in the future. countries like Sweden, northern Scotland and even Spain. The president of Virgin Galactic, Will Whitehorn, said he is in contact with Spanish and local authorities to study a project in a "secret" place near Barcelona, ​​which would be operational within three to four years.

All this until Ryanair and the rest of low-cost companies get into the matter and start promoting the outings to low cost space; you will print the ticket yourself at home and make an astronaut suit with patches. There will be departures every 5 minutes and we will take over the space. It will depart from cheaper secondary airports built by poorly paid immigrants who will be tried to return to their country once the space bubble has exploded without even thanking them. Anyway, that progress is like this, cycles that repeat and news that tomorrow will be history.
