Friday's ecotourism: Outer Space with Virgin Galactic

Virgingalactic1_1

The space travel itself, offered by Virgin Galactic, probably has all kinds of environmental issues in regards to the fuel burned, but the interior itself is designed to be incredibly inert - a dream vacation for anybody with chemical sensitivities. However, the eco-aspect comes in in that it is a travel company owned by Sir Richard Branson, who pledged all his travel profits to fight global warming for the next ten years. So if you have a spare $200k USD lying around, you can spend it knowing you get to go to space, and the profits stay with the planet. [GT]
