Although Virgin was the first to achieve private spaceflight, SpaceX has revolutionized the commercial side of the business. Just over a half decade ago, SpaceX achieved the first commercial orbit and within two years of that, were powering unmanned resupply ships to the International Space Station. Their offering is about to become far more affordable. After three previous failed attempts, SpaceX successfully landed their launch rocket after delivering a resupply vessel to the ISS. As the SpaceX blog detailing the procedure says:

"A jumbo jet costs about the same as one of our Falcon 9 rockets, but airlines don't junk a plane after a one-way trip from LA to New York."
