Branson unveils civilian spacecraft

In less than two years, anyone with a few hundred thousand dollars can go into space.



    It's one small step for billionaire businessman Richard Branson ... and one giant leap for people who have always dreamed of travelling into space.

    Virgin Galactic has unveiled the world's first commercial space-craft. 

    But if you're hoping for an economy class flight to the final frontier, you're going to be disappointed. Tickets are expected to cost $200,000.
