Richard Branson of Virgin Galactic space travel and producer Mark Burnett have teamed up for a space travel reality show. NBC has picked up the idea of ‘Space Race’, a reality show competition with the prize being a trip to space aboard Space Ship Two.

While space travel is extremely expensive, this gives a chance for the average Joe or Jane to make the trip to outer space. It's also an opportunity for Virgin Galactic to plug its company whose mission is to make space travel affordable for everyone in the future.

There have been other attempts for a space reality T.V. show but none got off the ground. NBC is hoping this time it will.
