Sir Richard Branson is holding up VSS Voyager/VSS Spirit of Steve Fossett. This assembly consists of WhiteKnightTwo (a mid-air launch system) carrying a SpaceShipTwo-class plane (suborbital spaceplane for tourists). Branson envisions this to be the first in his Virgin Galactic fleet.
We wish you all the best, Virgin Galactic, and hope to god we’ll be alive/rich enough to fly in this if it takes off (ha ha) in our lifetimes.
