Richard Branson says SpaceX launch is “tremendously exciting”

Following the successful launch of the unmanned SpaceX rocket known as Falcon 9, Brooke talks to Richard Branson. Branson is the founder of the Virgin Group that is planning to go into the business of space tourism with a line-up of hundreds of clients waiting for their turn in outer space. He says private space exploration can do the same work government organizations do, but at a fraction of the cost. If you would like to reserve a spot on one of Virgin Galactic’s future flights into space, it will only cost you 200 thousand dollars.
