The follow up to Brut Rutans Spaceship One has been introduced in a limited way. This one is a joint project between Scaled Composites and Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic. Wish I could scrape up the $$ for a flight.

You can always get a mortage(or second) out. It'd be worth it.
Or trade in millions of Virgin Atlantic Air miles




“If it was ready next week, I’d be there,” Alan Watts, who has traded in two million Virgin Atlantic frequent flyer miles for a ride on SpaceShipTwo, told SPACE.com. “I’m really looking forward to it.”

Now you've gone and done it. I see a big fight with my wife when I get home tonight and explain why I need to remortgage the house.

Maybe when SpaceShipThree is out, tickets for SpaceShipTwo rides will be cheaper?

Umm, SS3 is an Orbital Spaceplane. I would think that tickets would cost roughly 5 to 10 times more then one would pay on a Sub-Orbital Spaceplane. They shouldn't confuse the classification like this, they should have the SS series only be sub-orbit and come up with a different nomenclature for LEO craft.

Finally, some specs and mockups have been released.


Damn cool looking, nice and clean, very futuristic.


Heres a good article on it from Popsci.
Unveiled! Virgin Galactic's New Ride
BTW, On the bottom of the links page, there a excellant animated video of the whole trip...its a must see! (the first 7 minutes are the best)

Heres a good comparison of SS1 & SS2.


In its "feather" config.
