Virgin Galactic unveils SpaceShip 2

When I was 17 or so, I had a moment of clarity one night walking home from a night on the town. I then told my friend who was walking with me that I had two ultimate goals in life: The first was having children (-check-). The other was to visit outer space.

I first heard of Virgin Galactic two years ago. The company’s been around since 2004 though, and has always had a plan to allow for commercial sub-orbital travel, with the possibility of orbital travel some time in the future.
Interstellar voyages still seems to be a bit far away (dlum-tss!), so for now I’ll be content with weightlessness and seeing the Earth from above, if even for just a little while.

Now, Virgin Galactic has released the first photos of the SpaceShip 2, which will hold six passengers in addition to flight crew. The starting price for flights starts at $200.000 though, so it might be a while until I get to finish my to-do list.
