Daredevil entrepreneur Richard Branson is planning to offer packaged holidays in outer space and claims he was the inspiration for busty Pamela Anderson to have a breast reduction. Speaking last night in a Webcast watched by hundreds of Net users, Branson told how his trendy company, Virgin, will be the first to open a hotel in space. He has already registered the name Virgin Galactic Airways and is examining ways to transport 10 people using a reusable rocket for a two-week holiday in a Virgin space hotel. During the one-hour chat, which has broken all records for Virgin Net, he also spoke about how Pamela Anderson got her idea for having a breast reduction from Virgin Cola. "When we designed the Virgin Cola Bottle in the shape of Pamela Anderson, we had to have the bottle reduced because it kept tipping over," he joked. "I believe that’s where she got the idea from," he said. He also revealed that his next daredevil challenge is to sail across the Atlantic Ocean in September faster than any one else in history. ®
