Virgin Galacticが数週間の内に宇宙に打ち上げられる予定であると、CEO Richard Branson氏が発表。
The new space race is well and truly under way. Virgin Galactic founder and CEO Richard Branson says his company will be in space "within weeks."
Speaking to CNBC in Singapore on Tuesday, Branson was also bullish about Virgin Galactic's bid to open up a new frontier of space tourism.
"We should be in space within weeks, not months. And then we will be in space with myself in months and not years," he said.
"We will be in space with people not too long after that so we have got a very, very exciting couple of months ahead."
