At this year’s DLD there was a presentation from Virgin Galactic, the venture with the rocket-powered SpaceShipOne (pictured). It turns out it’s $200,000 for a sub orbital flight.

At one point someone asked, “How much to go around the moon?”. The answer was $1.5 million. But not on Virgin – that’s elon Musk’s spaceX program, which will be in 2013/4.

But right after that the conference whispers confirmed that someone in the audience had actually bought a ticket on Virgin’s sub-orbital flight.

And now it looks like we now know who that was: one Lars Hinrichs, founder of Xing, and now Angel investor and founder of the HackFWD accelerator programme.

We hope he’s got his medical checks sorted out.
