NBC's 'Today' To Broadcast Branson Family Space Vacation
As revealed this morning on Today to everyone staying home sick and Mom, NBC is planning to broadcast the flight that will make Richard Branson and his offspring the first non-government employees in space. The network has reportedly made an agreement with Branson to follow the ongoing development of his SpaceShipTwo rocket, all leading up to squinty, toothy grin that will signify that the Virgin Galactic entrepreneur has successfully gone beyond Earth's atmosphere. It's not yet known for sure when Branson's team will be prepared for the journey, but the goal is currently set for the special to air in August of next year. Then back to Willard Scott to advertise jelly and tell us who turned a hundred-and-five, because that's also news.
