Models, graphics, and videos of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo were unveiled yesterday, and it looks like a pretty sweet ride. The "flight simulation" video is not much different from an earlier version posted last year, but the design of the spaceship and its carrier aircraft have been updated and are (presumably) closer to what will actually fly. The paint scheme is new too. I do want to do a suborbital (or better) spaceflight someday, but the $200K introductory price is just a bit out of my price range at the moment.
