VSS Enterprise – boldly going where some have gone before

Ever since Richard Branson announced several years ago that Virgin would privatize space travel to create an industry of space tourism, I’ve been very excited about the prospect.

And now comes news that Virgin Galactic‘s second space plane, SpaceShipTwo (a.k.a. the VSS Enterprise) is ready to take its first flight. If Virgin can successful create this new industry it will only be a matter of time before other companies want a piece of the action. And when there’s a real competition incentive, that’s uoften when real progress is made.
