Richard Branson Will Be Heading into Space

British billionaire Richard Branson plans to travel to space within the next four or five months aboard his own Virgin Galactic spaceship, he told AFP. “My wish is to go up on the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, that's what we're working on,” the head of the Virgin Group said. 
Virgin Galactic is one of two companies, along with Blue Origin, on its way to sending passengers into space – though just barely, and just for a few minutes. The companies want to send hundreds or thousands of people on these short “suborbital” flights, meaning they wouldn't get high enough to orbit the earth.
