For a while, it seemed that Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic was a breezy, pioneering idea that was as much about entertainment, as about space. Indeed, renowned Hollywood g-forces like Tom Hanks, Angelina Jolie, and Ashton Kutcher signed up very quickly. Now Branson himself has admitted that perhaps the biggest challenge facing the project is to ensure that no one dies. He told the Guardian's Jon Ronson: "The biggest worry I had was re-entry. NASA has lost about 3% of everyone who's gone into space, and re-entry has been their biggest problem. For a government-owned company, you can just about get away with losing 3% of your clients. For a private company you can't really lose anybody." Branson insists that he and his children will be on the first flight. It's still unclear when that may be.
