Virgin Spaceship Unveiled

Today, Virgin Group’s Richard Branson is unveiling his venture’s first space tourism vehicle, SpaceShipTwo.

The ship’s predecessor, SpaceShipOne, also designed by the aerospace legend Burt Rutan, won the $10 million X Prize, given to the first private spacecraft to fly into suborbital space twice within a 14 day period.

Given the winning and demonstrated design of SpaceShipOne, Branson launched Virgin Galactic to give people the opportunity to visit outer space, for a mere $200,000.
