NBC Universal to Televise First Virgin Galactic Flight
By Bitten and Bound on November 08, 2013
NBC morning talk show ‘TODAY’ will televise the first commercial space flight carrying Sir Richard Branson and his two adult children. The Virgin Galactic founder made the announcement Friday – detailing an agreement that will track the development of the SpaceShipTwo rocket plane on television and climax with a flight that will put the billionaire and his offspring Sam Branson, 28, and Molly Branson, 31, into outerspace. If all goes according to plan, the inaugural space flight will leave New Mexico’s Spaceport America in August 2014.
