From an article in the Robb Report:
"Gorbachev offered me the chance to be the first space tourist," Branson said, recalling a conversation with then Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev in the 1980s. "But I told him, why buy a ticket to space for $35 million when you can build a spaceship company?"
Anybody knows more about this purported offer?
