Tony Poe of Little Rock-based Poe Travel today announced he is among 45 U.S. travel agents selected by Virgin Galactic to train to become an "Accredited Space Agent."

Virgin Galactic is part of billionaire Richard Branson's Virgin Group, and it is developing spaceships for tourism. If all goes as planned, Poe will be the local contact to reserve seats aboard Virgin Galactic’s suborbital space flights, which are scheduled to begin in late 2008.
