One Ride I REALLY Wouldn't Mind Taking

If you've got a spare $200,000 floating around, maybe you can treat yourself to a wee little ride on Sir Branson's upcoming spacecraft, Spaceship Two! This video (from YouTube) is Virgin Galactic's seven minute advertisement for their civilian space flight service. Excellent! Actually I'm a big Burt Rutan fan - the chap that designed and created both SpaceShip One (the spacecraft itself) and the White Knight launch vehicle. He's a real aviation genius and somewhat of a visionary. His other flying machines are pretty impressive too. Check them out here.
