Virgin Galactic, billionaire Richard Branson's space travel venture, plans to order five more spaceships and aims to turn a profit in five years from its commercial launch in 2010, an official said on Thursday. Prospective space travellers have so far placed deposits totalling more than $31-million for tickets that cost $200000 each.
