From as early as the end of 2013, Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo could be taking civilians into space.
The two-hour trip will cost a cool $200,000 (£129,000), but it will buy passengers a few minutes of weightlessness as the ship travels to the edge of space, 60 miles above the earth.
This full-scale replica of SpaceShipTwo is on show at the Farnborough International Airshow in Hampshire, England all this week.
