Virgin Galactic, which offers human spaceflights to public, is planning to be listed to fund the growth. According to Wall Street Journal, the Social Capital Hedesophia  Holdings is planning to invest about 800 million dollars in Virgin Galactic for a 49 % stake. This would also mean that the Virgin Galactic would become publicly listed later this year.

The space travelling is become more common while Amazon´s owner Jeff Bezoz´s Blue Origin and Elon Musk´s Space Exploration Technologies (Space X) are also in the same markets.

According to WSJ, the Virgin Galactic has already raised more than 1 billion dollars since it was founded in 2004.
