The world's first commercial hub for spacecraft has opened in the US state of New Mexico.

Virgin Galactic, which is owned by UK businessman Richard Branson, plans to start offering commercial services within two years, with customers having to pay $200,000 to fly outside the earth's atmosphere.

Already more than 400 people are in the queue to witness a view of the Earth until now reserved only for professional astronauts.

Al Jazeera's John Terrett reports from New Mexico.
