World for mankind was limited to the planet Earth, but people constantly stared at the sky and tried to find answers about how our world and what is human in him.

The reader may object to me putting in on the space race, the fact that the US (a capitalist country) quite a bit late on the moon and that they were the first.

So be it. But in the USA before it was not conducted military operations, from which a significant portion of the country lay in ruins. Therefore, you shouldn’t have neither the time nor the funds to restore infrastructure. And what about the irreparable loss of millions of lives and unborn children. The consequences are simply unimaginable number. However, the Soviet people were able not only to overcome all the difficulties in rebuilding the country, but also to win the space race.

Each flight can accommodate six passengers and will last two hours and a half in suborbital space (110 kilometers above the Earth). Once there, passengers will be able to freely float in zero gravity and enjoy the fact that the CEO of Virgin Galactic George Whitesides calls “transformative experience”. Continents, oceans and clouds will float from the bottom, and overhead will be boundless space. Continue reading
