Virgin Galactic ties up with Jaguar Land Rover

Virgin Galactic, the space tourism venture, has struck a partnership with car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover.

Land Rover vehicles will be used by all the Virgin Galactic team and for all ‘Future Astronauts’ as they take part in training in New Mexico.
 
The partnership is also aimed at inspiring more young people to consider a future in science, technology, engineering and maths.

Virgin Galactic claims its inaugural space flight is due to take place by the end of 2014 and that more than 700 people have put down a deposit for a place.
