You have heard for over a decade about Richard Branson’s company Virgin Galactic and their roadmap to build a spaceship. The wait has finally ended. In this CNET video, senior producer Andy Altman shares the first look at the space tourism company’s spaceship – VSS Imagine. The only difference between you and the NASA astronauts is you will have to pay ‘a quarter of a million dollars’ for a ride in this Virgin Galactic’s spaceship. VSS Imagine differs from the former VSS Unity in its exterior design. Additionally, the new material will offer thermal protection. The modular design makes it easier for engineers to maintain and produce enhancements. The spaceship is projected to make 400 flights every year per spaceport.
