On Sunday, July 11, space tourism officially began.
Richard Branson, a UK-born billionaire, traveled about 53 miles above Earth to the edge of space.
The crew of six, Branson among them, spent about four minutes in zero gravity and could see the curvature of the Earth.
I wrote about Virgin Galactic and Branson’s then-upcoming trip back in March.
Since then, several things have happened.
First (of course), Virgin Galactic sent its founder to the edge of space.
