The start of the public spaceflight ticket sale is therefore expected to propel the stock to a new high especially if the company follows through and conducts the actual space flight soon.

The spaceflight tickets are going for $450,000 for a single-seat purchase and require a deposit of $150,000. People can choose from three packages: a single-seat purchase, packaged seats for couples and family or friends.

Of the $150,000 deposit, $25,000 is non-refundable.
