Damn, and I just spent that extra $200,000 I had.

@scottyanimal: Maybe you can return what you bought? Hopefully they dont get you with the 15% restocking fee though...

vote-for9vote-against

It'd be cool to find this in your bag of crap.

vote-for5vote-against

With MY luck I would end up in the seat next to Richard Branson or some guy who won't shut up. Oh wait! Same thing.

How is this a deal?? amazon has the same tickets for $199,995 + $3 shipping...

vote-for1vote-against

wth.
the website says "join around 340 Virgin Galactic astronauts...", @ $200k a pop, that's some serious cash.

vote-for1vote-against

For that price, I'm sure I'll only get half a can of pop. Not to mention that it will be floating all around me (and on me)! I'm holding out for the upgrade to first class...

@kmjoen230: 340 VIRGINS you say? In for one... No no, make it three.

vote-for4vote-against

lol @everyone these are some of the funniest comments i have ever read on woot.

vote-for9vote-against

I'm going to have to wait for my tax refund on this one. Funny difference between men and women. As a woman, hearing there are 340 virgin men on board definitely does't increase my desire to be there.

@stone11375: Or a morbidly obese guy who just makes the whole trip uncomfortable.

Will Steven Slater be serving drinks on board this flight?

vote-for1vote-against

not a deal, apparently, I am guessing Jason Toon worked out some special arrangement w/Branson et al to get a free ride with every 20+ paying passengers, or some such scheme.......

Jonny Knoxville is a pilot at 1:07 Mark in this video. http://www.virgingalactic.com/ That's worth the price of admission.

Its only 180 Easy Payments of $1,000 plus interest after the $20,000 deposit

There are cheaper ways to get into space. For instance, I just hang out in a corn field late at night. That's when "the greys" come to pick me up for a joy ride around the solar system.

Sure there's some memory loss and a probe or two, but it's technically free.

vote-for1vote-against

I think I have enough money to send just my eyeball, hmmmm!!! wonder where they would keep, and would I get it back.

vote-for1vote-against

I found a picture of the other passengers.

vote-for1vote-against

Hmm.. A lot of ppl who buy $200000 tickets must be checking deals.woot

vote-for3vote-against

I can't swing that. How much one way?

"Book with your local accredited space agent"

How does one become an "accredited space agent"?

Trolling CL to see if I can find an ad for that.

Anyone know what the in-flight movie is? I'd had to have a boring movie on my way to space.

vote-for1vote-against

My friend said he went last year, but they made him buy two tickets because he's very overweight.

vote-for1vote-against

I wonder how many frequent flyer miles I would need...maybe you get double points for this flight!

vote-for3vote-against

anybody want to join the 50,000 mile high club

vote-for1vote-against

first class or premiere? includes breakfast or drinks?

vote-for2vote-against

I'll wait till it show's up in the Woot-off

vote-for1vote-against

Lame. If you are willing to do a layover, you can probably find this cheaper on Orbitz.

vote-for0vote-against

200k and 340 ppl? that's 68 mil per ride they make.

Where's the Priceline Negotiator? Kirk's gotta have a better deal for a space flight than this!

vote-for1vote-against

Do my bags go for free, or do I have to pay $25 each for them? $200K isn't bad, but I won't go if I have to pay for my bags.

They have an accredited apace agent in soutnern mexico. I'm getting my ticket there, 200,000 pesos is only $1576.00.

vote-for1vote-against

Just wait. Its expected to fall to $20,000...

Well, according to Wikipedia, at least...

vote-for1vote-against

@highwyre237: "amazon has the same tickets for $199,995 + $3 shipping... "

Techically, isn't the $200K pretty much all shipping cost?

vote-for1vote-against

@scottyanimal: what did you spend that extra 200,000 on? refundable?

Used Promo Code - HAL 9000. You get a bonus side-trip to see the four million-year-old black monolith, near the lunar crater Tycho.
