British billionaire Richard Branson flew into space on Sunday aboard a Virgin Galactic vessel, a journey he described as the “experience of a lifetime” which might turn into a lucrative business soon.

The 70-year-old British founder of Virgin Galactic, billionaire Sir Richard Branson, launched into space on Sunday morning aboard a Virgin Galactic flight and returned home safely.

It reached a peak altitude of around 53 miles (85 kilometers) beyond the boundary of space, according to the United States — allowing the passengers to experience weightlessness and admire the Earth’s curvature.

Virgin Galactic rocket plane has taken off for a 1.5-hour mission which will see it reach an altitude where the sky turns black.

The mission above New Mexico began shortly after 08:30 EST (15:30 BST).

Earlier, a massive carrier plane took off and ascended to 50,000 feet before dropping VSS Unity to complete the rest of the flight using its rocket-powered engine.

The spaceplane carried two pilots and four passengers, including Branson.

Branson said that he wanted to evaluate the private astronaut experience before he before allows paying customers aboard next year.

Book Your ticket as well?

The ultimate goal is to conduct 400 flights per year.

600 tickets have already been sold to people from 60 different countries — including Hollywood celebrities — for prices ranging from $200,000 to $250,000.

The competition in the space tourism sector has come to head this month.

Can Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos give Sir Richard Branson a tough time, lets see.
