I just watched a video about the Virgin Galactic Spaceship 2 that showed the new type of Space travel. This new space ship is said to make space travel available to thousands of people and much more affordable. I think this is unbelievable. Over time space travel will be just as common as airplanes. When I saw this video I thought of myself on this ship because there is a very good possibility that one day space travel will be extremely available and open to everyone. The video is only a simulation of what they believe the craft will do. Virgin Galactic's first attempt with Spaceship 1 didn’t go perfectly to plan but the idea that they had worked great. These spaceships were made to get out into space, which didn’t work in Spaceship 1, but on its way down to Earth it turns into just a glider plane, this worked very well. Virgin Galactic made many changes and improvements to Spaceship 1. When they get these spaceships perfect they will be available for anyone who want to travel into space. One of the designers of the “space plane” says that everyone should have the opportunity to experience space travel one day. This ship is making that claim very possible in the very near future.
