Virgin Galactic offers deal

Currently, the biggest reasons to not go to space are availability of vehicles (the Soyuz and the Space Shuttle are soon to be out of reach) and the price (more than your average Industrialist can afford).

Virgin Galactic, which plans to bring spaceflight to the masses, is making the fare a little easier to swallow.

Virgin Galactic is offering a discount to space: for a mere 200,000 Virgin Atlantic airmiles, you can take 10% off of the price of a ticket to space. With your discount, your journey will cost $180,000 instead of the original price of $200,000.

You can earn these airmiles by joining Virgin Atlantic's Flying Club and circumnavigating the globe a little over eight times.
