Virgin Galactic - SpaceShipTwo Pictures and Video

Space travel is almost upon us as Virgin Galactic unveil pictures and video of the SpaceShipTwo planes. The $200,000 price tag buys you a once in a lifetime experience as well as all the training required to survive the flight. Imagine soaring 65 miles above the earth and seeing the blue of Earth's atmosphere transform before your very eyes into the black of space...and then you see Earth. For those rich enough to afford this very short holiday, we envy you very much!



 
 

Virgin Glactic claim that 300 people have already paid in full for the trip, and thousands more have got in queue to be the next space tourists. Virgin Galactic hopes that after the first few maiden flights even more space tourists will come forth, eventually driving the costs down for these flights to more modest figures.
