Space: The expensive frontier

For the person who has everything - including an extra $200,000 laying around - you can soon enjoy a flight in space courtesy of British tycoon and purveyor of extreme good times Richard Branson

And you thought that round-trip ticket from New York to L.A. was expensive.

Actually, you're not going to outer space for the $200K. You only get sub-orbital space (about 70 miles up). While a press release offered details on advanced avionics and other such stuff, there was no word if peanuts would be served or if an in-flight movie is available.
