Virgin Galactic SpaceShip

January 29, 2008


Virgin Galactic is on track to start launching commercial space flights in 2009, and they just announced their new spaceship designs.

SpaceShipTwo is the spaceship that’ll actually go into space, while White Knight Two is the plane that’ll bring it up high enough to launch itself away. SpaceShipTwo will be able to tote eight people at a time into sub-orbit, two pilots and six passengers, each of whom will pay $200,000 for the right to be one of the few humans to see the earth from above.
