Up and away into space.
Banker Peter von May is planning to become the first ever Swiss space tourist onboard Richard Branson's pioneering Virgin Galactic space shuttle. The flight, the first commercial venture of its kind, will climb up to a height of 110 kilometres above the globe, allowing the passengers to feel weightlessness and catch an exceptional view of the Earth. This is an animated film of the Virgin Galactic spaceliner in flight. (Virgin Galactic 04.06.2009)
