Designs for SpaceShipTwo (pictured), the craft Virgin Galactic plans to use to take travelers into space as early as 2009, were shown publicly for the first time at a press conference today in New York. Virgin Galactic’s Web site has many other images of the beautiful ship and its carrier plane, WhiteKnightTwo—if you’re patient enough to give the page time to load. It seems to be overwhelmed with traffic this afternoon.
Wired, which live blogged today’s press conference with Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson and SpaceShipTwo creator Burt Rutan, is among many with detailed coverage.
