The planes "N" number is still registered to scaled composites (Burt Rutan) and more information on "Eve" can be found there.

Scaled Composites

Here is the "n" number information.

N Registration

It will be interesting to see how the new spaceport operates.

If you read between the lines i don't think this is going to be "out of this earth" experience.

..."The mother ship, nicknamed Eve, will carry an attached spacecraft to suborbital altitudes, where it will be launched 62 miles into space. The two-hour round trip, which will cost $200,000 a passenger, will include a brief period of weightlessness before the return to the spaceport.

WhiteKnight Two has reached altitudes of more than 52,000 feet in test flights..."

In the first comment they say....Sub Orbital then 62 miles into space.We don't use measuring systems when we in space.

Then a brief Period of Weightlessness...

I'd rather spend my money...if i had that much on something else.

I was at the 3 X-prize launches.
Space Ship One #1
Space Ship One #2
Space Ship One #3

Scaled Composites and NASA are a lot closer than they are apart.
