Founded in 2004 by Sir Richard Branson, Virgin Galactic is an airline that offers trips to the outer rim of our atmosphere—taking off from a strip of dusty land in New Mexico. Tickets start at $200,000 and will afford passengers the opportunity to enter space—a claim typically reserved for NASA-trained astronauts. The trip lasts 90 minutes, courtesy of a supersonic plane, but hours more could soon be spent lounging in the company’s newly-built Spaceport Terminal. Within the modern hub there will be food and drink options, an expansive cafe and panoramic views of the surrounding area. The debut flights are scheduled to take place in the first half of 2020.
