Virgin Galactic?

This logo is fucking creepy, man:


From Wikipedia:

Virgin Galactic already has $30 million in bookings for flights. Although the initial deposit is set to be $200,000 for the first 100 to fly, the next 400 will pay a deposit between $100,000 and $175,000; all passengers after that will pay a deposit of only $20,000 each.[1]

Among those reported to have told Branson that they wished to be among the first to fly on the spacecraft are actor William Shatner,[2][12] designer Philippe Starck,[13] former Jane’s Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Dave Navarro,[14] Alien star Sigourney Weaver,[15] Hollywood director Bryan Singer,[13] musician Moby,[14] socialite Paris Hilton,[16] and astrophysicist Stephen Hawking (who on January 8, 2007 announced plans to take a sub-orbital flight in 2009).[17] Also, Richard Branson himself and some of his family members will be launched on the VSS Enterprise’s first commercial flight in 2009, before everyone else.[18] In 2006, Richard Branson offered actor William Shatner a free ride on the inaugural space launch in 2008, saving Shatner $200,000; however, Shatner turned it down, and said, “I do want to go up but I need guarantees I’ll definitely come back”.[19]

Virgin Galactic confirmed in October 2008 that they had turned down an offer, received during the year’s International Astronautical Congress, of $1 million from an unidentified party to shoot an adult movie on one of their flights.
