Richard Branson makes spaceflight 11 July – beating his rival Jeff Bazos of Amazon
Branson will be a passenger in the Unity Rocket plane his virgin Galactic company has been developing in the US for the best part of two decades.
The vehicle can climb to an altitude of 90km (295,000ft), giving those onboard a few minutes of weightlessness and a view of the curvature of the Earth.
Some enthusiasts have paid a ticket price of about $250,000 (£180,000).
