Space tourism company Virgin Galactic announced Monday that 100 people have bought more expensive tickets to travel on its suborbital space plane after the company resumed ticketing in August. Virgin Galactic's rescheduled ticket prices have risen sharply to $450,000 per seat from $250,000.

That means there are now about 700 space ship ticket holders waiting for a quick trip into space, about 300 fewer than the 1,000 tickets Virgin Galactic was expected to sell before it began commercial flights.

In July, Richard & Middot, virgin Galactic's founder; Richard Branson has arrived at the edge of space and returned to Earth in his space plane, VSS Unity. Virgin Galactic restarted ticket sales just a month later. (Author/Xiao Yu)
