It’s so hot Xeni Jardin wants to fondle it. Other reports from today’s unveiling of the high-altitude aircraft that will carry SpaceShipTwo, Virgin Galactic’s commercial space ship, to the edge of the atmosphere were almost as breathless. Wired, the Los Angeles Times, Jaunted and others have reports from the scene in California’s Mojave Desert.

A commercial space ship and a jet pack unveiled in the same day!?!? Far out.

Smart guy, Richard Branson. Names it the White Knight, and unveils it just after Dark Knight, and he does it in the Mojave Desert, just after X-Files comes out.
