September 30 - Space Tickets

Are you a frequent flier? Fancy a change from Heathrow to New York and back again? Well, if you have 2,000,000 frequent fliers tickets from all those boring business trips, why not go to space? If Space isn't your things, you could always go to New York from London for 90,000 tickets. Alan Watts, a 51-year old electrician from Middlesex, England, was contacted by Virgin and asked if he'd like to go to space, and that's just what he's done. When contacted by the team behind the Virgin Galactic SpaceShip2, Mr Watts apparently thought that it was 'a prank phone call'. When interviewed, Mr Watts said 'This will be the most thrilling experience of my life. The closest I've ever been to space was on the Space Mountain ride in Florida'. Mr Watts will be amongst the first people to fly on Virgin's new passenger aircraft which launches in 2009. The $100,000 journey is the equivelant of flying to the US from Heathrow 1st class 40 times.
