Virgin Galactic flight open doors to space tourism
Virgin Galactic owner Richard Branson finally reached the edge of space and returned safely to Earth. It is a trip that marks the turning point in the billionaire entrepreneur's multidecade efforts for the space tourism industry. It is known that Branson and five other crew members completed the space trip on a Virgin Galactic Holdings Inc. rocket plane to take passengers to and fro between space and earth.
Branson plans to start commercial service next year and it charges hundreds of thousands of dollars from each passenger to take them to space. Sirisha Bandla who was born at Tenali in Guntur district and raised in the US is the first Telugu woman to reach space.
