Virgin Galactic

Subscribe to the Mailing List

Dec 1998:

Sent an email to Sir Richard Branson directly onboard the ICO Global Balloon Challenge in response to his statement that this would be the last major record attempt he would make. Each of Per Lindstrand, Steve Fossett and Sir Richard Branson were provided with an individual email address where you could email them directly onboard the Hot Air Balloon. So I sent one to Sir Richard Branson.

I told him (facetiously) that there must be plenty of records left to conquer in space, and then asked him (more seriously) how long it would be before we saw him taking passengers to space under the banner, "Virgin Galactic Spacelines". I came up with the name by thinking of a half-rhyme from their flagship company, Virgin Atlantic Airways, and playing off that to come up with "Virgin Galactic".
