It may not remind you of Star Trek but it sure will get you there. We are talking about the unveiling of the SpaceShipTwo.
Space travel will not be a distant reality thanks to the efforts of the British entrepreneur Sir Richard Branson. The luxurious interiors of Virgin Galactic Spaceship have been designed to keep space tourism in mind. A far cry from the first-class seats of most commercial airlines you can now look forward to cushioned reclining seats and lots of windows during suborbital flights. The plush interiors pictures were revealed at Wired Magazine’s NextFest forum that is taking place in NYC this week. The actual plane will be revealed within 12 months from now and the test flights will commence thereafter. Future passengers eager to join the cabin crew in this space odyssey are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (they have already paid £115,000 each) joining them are Robbie Williams and William Shatner
With the seating capacity of eight people (including two pilots), Virgin Galactic passengers will buy a $2,00,000 ticket for a 2.5-hour flight aboard SpaceShipTwo.
