Pic of the Day: Virgin Galatic Spaceshiptwo
Yesterday Virgin Galactic revealed Spaceshiptwo, the world’s first commercial spacecraft, which will start shipping tourists out into the final frontier for $200,000 a pop after testing. Three hundred people have already signed up and CEO Richard Branson — who spent an estimated $250 to 400 M on the venture — plans to be the first passenger. He calls it “the sexiest spaceship ever.”
If you’ve got the $20,000 down payment, you can make your own spaceflight reservation here now. Peep some additional images and an animation by Virgin Galactic showing what flying on board the SS2 will be like after the jump.
