You are all missing the REAL news here...

From the blog:
"One future astronaut, a female flight attendant from Hawaii, has already purchased her Virgin Galactic ticket using bitcoins"
----SNIP---


Actually, the real news here is that a flight attendant spent the equivalent of 250,000 USD on a space flight. I'm not sure which is more newsworthy, that she's obviously gotten rather wealthy on Bitcoin, or that she's apparently still working...

 Considering the sums involved, accepting Bitcoin makes perfect sense for Virgin Galactic. You're not exactly going to be paying that with your credit card in most cases.

I wonder what international wire fees for that sum would come to, as well...

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

< 100 BTC is not worth mentioning. Poor souls will always remain poor. Don't miss the failtrain.

Moon isn't 100 or so km away. I think the ticket you get with 250k is just for some very low earth orbit or something
