Virgin Galactic showed off the White Knight Two, the long awaited aircraft that will carry tourists into space. SpaceShipTwo will be flown up to 50,000 feet and launched for suborbital flight, making non-stop flights from one United States coast to the other.
The White Knight Two craft was revealed at the Mojave Air Space port and thousands of onlookers and well-wishers marked the occasion.
At least 100 future astronauts have signed up to fly and were on hand to see their spacecraft. SpaceShipTwo will rollout in 2009. White Knight Two is called Eve in honor of Richard Branson's mother.
