FAA will work alongside Virgin Galactic to grant clearance to its suborbital flights to hit space. Seems like 600 people have already signed up for the trip – the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Bieber included.
Which city will see the flight blast off? It’s got to be in the United States of America, of course. Flights are slated to take off by the end of 2014 from Spaceport America in New Mexico.
