He commented that Malaysia has a good reputation overseas but there are several issues which the country needs to tackle to attract investors. He also shared about his space travel program and that it is no longer a fantasy as tourists would soon be able to travel to the moon on a day trip and stay in a space hotel.
According to him, the space-travel fare would start from US$200,000 (RM600,000). Virgin Galatic, under the stable of Branson’s Virgin group, is the world’s first commercial company that promotes space tourism and they are 18 months away from taking people into space.
Virgin Galatic had collected some US$45mil (RM135mil) in deposits from more than 330 people who had reserved seats aboard the six-seater spaceship. When this travel program comes into existence, we'd be talking about space insurance instead of auto insurance. So, are you set for space travel? Would you go on this trip if you have the chance?
