This is your opportunity to be among the founding Virgin Galactic astronauts. Your reservation includes more than a spaceflight. You’ll enjoy a Future Astronaut community membership, a multi-day training and preparation retreat at Spaceport America with family and friends, bespoke flightwear, astronaut insignia, photographs and video, opportunities to give back to future generations and more.
