British billionaire Richard Branson flew into space Sunday aboard a Virgin Galactic vessel, a voyage he described as the "experience of a lifetime"- and one he hopes will usher in an era of lucrative space tourism.

It reached a peak altitude of around 53 miles- beyond the boundary of space, allowing the passengers to experience weightlessness and admire the Earth's curvature.
