Knowledge story, The Knowledge

UAE nationals will soon have the chance to explore space, thanks to competition by Virgin Galactic and Aabar Investments. One winner will be given a seat on board Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo when it begins commercial flights into space, sitting alongside passengers who have paid more than Dhs900,000 for the privilege. While the details of the competition are still being finalised, we know the winner will be taken more than 90km above Earth. The long-delayed first lift-off is expected to take place later
this year.
