I just interviewed Richard Branson for PopSnap because of an article I read today in TechCrunch about Virgin Galactic. Disclosure: PopSnap is sponsored by Perkett PR and TechCrunch and I check in on Tech Crunch daily. Today, I’m glad I did because I got to meet Richard Branson who jetted his way to the Natural History Museum in Manhattan to unveil the SpaceShipTwo. The security was padded in three layers to get in to see the SpaceShipTwo and this was a non-press event. I wasn’t allowed to go upstairs to see it. I could only wait by the door to get interviews with some lawyers, travel agents, and other attendies. More video will come out on tomorrow’s PopSnap. For now here is a trailer with Richard Branson. Virgin Galactica would be amazing and I want to be one of the first to go.
