Virgin Galactic

New photos of the Virgin Galactic White Knight Night II, constructed from carbon fiber composite, were unveiled today. Click here for first picture in gallery.

WhiteKnight and SpaceShipTwo can launch higher in altitude than the first ships, but the SpaceShip can’t grab enough atmosphere any higher than the previous launch point, so can’t go as high this way.
