This is a CGI depiction of a hypothetical flight in the new Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo, from take-off while mated to the carrier craft, through boost phase, then the ballistic phase where passengers can float freely in space, then reconfiguration for re-entry, then the return flight, and finally the landing back at the spaceport.

Wow this is really something, I mean space the final frontier, it can´t be cooler the that.

I would definitly go if I got the chance, It´s just a shame that the tickets cost $200,000 and deposits start from $20,000, which is nuts….. Oh well I´ll just have to wait to some competitors to push the prices down. 😀

Here is a introduction by Richard Branson, interviews with Brian Binnie and Mike Melvill, with video footage from the SpaceShipOne test flights.

WOG out.
