We all know how Virgin Galactic's WhiteKnightTwo looks from the outside, but this is the first time ever you are going to see the cockpit of SpaceShipTwo's mothership. It looks like the old-style spaceship cockpits from Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon.
The hybrid Nitrous Oxide rocket that will take SpaceShipTwo to 65 miles above the Earth at 2500mph (YES!) has fired off for the first time in the southern California desert. Founder, adventurer and cool-guy-at-large Sir Richard Branson is happy:
WhiteKnightTwo, which will shuttle SpaceShipTwo into suborbital space, is about to be unveiled in the Mojave desert. I believe that's SpaceShipTwo under the veil. Update: More Photos of WhiteKnightTwo below. Interview with a spaceship pilot.
