Keeping the Dream Alive

A human life may or may not have a supreme purpose, but it will always revolve largely around solving problems. This is such a centerpiece to our existence because doing so is the only organic way through which we can expand our boundaries. Consistently coming up with solutions has benefitted us in a lot of different ways over the years, but when the conversation becomes about overall impact, none of those benefits even came close to achieving what technology did in a far shorter period. You see, soon after arriving on the scene, technology was revamping our entire global structure, making it more efficient than ever before. Notably enough, the creation didn’t just change up a few methodologies here and there. Instead, it also introduced some brand new possibilities, which were once only a pipe dream. If we are to take an example here, we can look at the burgeoning space industry. Prior to technology’s takeover, no one would even dare to imagine things like visiting the moon or, let’s say, populating the mars. However, the same ideas are now attracting belief from all over the world. In fact, we now look poised to aim for much bigger goals, one of them centered on turning space travel mainstream. Similar to other space ambitions, this one also sounded a little ludicrous initially, but it has grown more and more real as of late, and Virgin Galactic’s recent announcement does everything to back that up.

Virgin Galactic is officially reopening sales of its space tourism tickets. Having secured over 600 reservations already during the previous sale, the company has seemingly notched up the price from $200,000 to $450,000. According to certain reports, Virgin Galactic hopes to sell around 1,000 seats before finally kickstarting commercial operations, but considering how things have panned out for the company, it’s hard to be sure. So far, we have the seen the goal of making space tourism a reality go through numerous really lengthy delays, with a big one appearing last year. After launching company founder, Sir Richard Branson to the edge of the space in July 2021, it felt like Virgin Galactic was finally ready to deliver on its promise. Nevertheless, one New Yorker report caused a major shakeup in the plans. According to the report, the warning lights had actually gone off during Branson’s flight. In case that wasn’t enough, the space plane also allegedly ended up straying from the designated airspace. It eventually resulted in the Federal Aviation Administration grounding all Virgin Galactic’s flights until clearance, which was given in September.

As far as the current launch goal is concerned, the company isn’t looking at anything concrete before October.
