Virgins in Outerspace
Hugo Drax Richard Branson is a step closer to implementing his diabolical plan realizing a long time dream of space tourism.
SpaceShipTwo, built from lightweight composite materials and powered by a hybrid rocket motor, is similar to its prototype cousin with three exceptions. It’s twice as large, measuring 60 feet long with a roomy cabin about the size of a Falcon 900 executive jet. It also has more windows including overhead portholes. While SpaceShipOne was designed for three people, SpaceShipTwo can carry six passengers and two pilots.
By SpaceShipTwo clearly he means Moonraker Five right? Illusions to Moonraker aside, this is a progress? I have no desire to travel to outerspace; I barely want to board a La Bamba plane for the brief – albeit shaky – hop to Albany.
