Virgin Galactic will soon become the first space tourism company to be publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Being added to public stock trading is a significant step forward for the company, and for the potential of a space tourism industry in the future. Virgin Galactic has indicated that it has already received 600 applications for space travel.
The public will be able to buy and sell Virgin Galactic stocks beginning on October 28th, when the organization will be added to the New York Stock Exchange. Virgin Galactic will be added to the public stock market around the same time the organization has merged with the Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings company.
