Global News published this video item, entitled “Winnipeg retiree holds Virgin Galactic ticket to space” – below is their description.
There’s no low-cost carrier when it comes to space travel. A seat on Virgin Galactic’s space plane will cost a quarter-million — once commercial flights begin.
A Winnipeg doctor has her ticket and her place in line.
Judy Anderson, a retired University of Manitoba professor, has been saving for her trip to space since 2010, when she first found out about billionaire Richard Branson’s plans to take people off the planet.
“I’m so looking forward to it,” Anderson said.
Anderson purchased ticket 623 for $200,000 USD at the time with a $20,000 down payment. She’ll have to pay the rest in full about three months before her flight.
And as Joe Scarpelli reports, her dream is closer to becoming reality.
