The unveiling of the cabin layout of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo

Sven Grahn

This took place at the Wired NextFest at the Javits Convention Center in New York on 27 september - 1 October 2006. I had the pleasure of attending this event. The first flight model of Virgin Galactic's SS2 will be revealed in the fourth quarter of 2007.

A daring slogan!
Text on the SS1 replica

Virgin Galactic constantly warns that the final product will not look 
like this. (picture courtesy of Virgin Galactic)
However, the size comparison between SS1 and SS2
is probably representative.
