Virgin Galactic will soon test supersonic flight's of it's VSS Unity. The VSS Unity is a rocket-powered piloted Spaceship that will carry commercial passengers along with scientific payloads to space.

Wondering much it will cost?


Roughly 700 people have already paid $250,000 so they can have a seat on the spacecraft. Virgin Galactic has said that the huge demand for allocations on the spacecraft means that anybody purchasing a ticket today will most-probably need to wait until at-least 2021 before they'll get to experience this incredible ride!

SpaceX also announced plans to send a paying passenger — along with eight others, on a trip around the moon in 2023.

Another competitor Blue Origin, a company from non other then Amazon, is also entering the market and is already fairly developed to Virgin Galactic's offering and ability to provide actual commercial flights.

The race to commercial flights in space is heating up, and I believe we will even see "space hotels" in the near future as well!
