Space Show congratulations to Virgin Galactic and Richard Branson for their successful space tourism flight

Feedback: What did you think of this show?: 

The Space Show congratulates Richard Branson and Virgin Galactic for a successful and inspiring first commercial space tourism flight.  Almost 17 years after the XPrize was won, success is at hand.  It has been a long and at times very costly road for Virgin Galactic and the industry but now commercial space tourism is here.

The Space Show is thrilled to have been part this history with interviews, programs, and more.

We look forward to more successful Virgin Galactic flights and to interviews with spaceflight participants from the Virgin flights.

Blue Origin is next up on the flight line.  We also wish Blue Origin and Jeff Bezos great success in their initial commercial flight.

Space Tourism holds the promise for much more to come as we create opportunities for space to benefit all of us.


In additition, I was interviewed by CNN Newsroom at 12:10 AM PDT July 11 for just under five minutes regarding the flight.  I have posted the CNN mp4 to the blog for this announcement.
