Thrill Ride

Today Sir Richard Branson and his crew tested his Virgin Galactic space rocket that will take you to the edge of Space over fifty miles high, and then back to land like an airplane. People are signing up to ride the next flight at $250,000 each. It seems people with lots of money are always looking for the next big thrill.

  1. Think of all the wells (for folks without access to fresh water) in Africa, or elsewhere, those “rich billionaires” could build with those space dollars! That would be a bigger thrill for me!!
