Bitcoins In Space: Virgin Galactic Accepts New Payment Method
Virgin Galactic, which is just years away from taking civilians to space, will now accept pre-payments on space flights via Bitcoin. In fact, the company's founder has announced that a female from Hawaii has already plopped down payment in the form of Bitcoins for a future ride to space. Virgin Galactic is a pretty innovative company, so accepting a fledgling currency just feels right.
In fact, investing early in Bitcoins could mean that this would be one of the cheapest ways to pay for a trip to space. Of course, you need a huge tolerance for risk... but then again, those willingly flying to space probably have no real qualms with risk.
