Scaled Composites to show the world SpaceShip Two this month

I can’t wait to see what the new Scaled Composites rocketplane will look like. On the 23rd they will uncover it to the world, and tests will start in the middle of this year.

Even more interesting, one of the flight paths for Virgin Galactic is not just to fly people up to the edge of space and back, but to take them up over by the poles to let passengers experience the northern lights by flying right through them.

Also of note at SpaceFlight Info, that the system is planned to put small satellites into orbit, making Scaled Composites a bit more than just a sub-orbital company…
