With Open-Architecture Mothership, Virgin Aims To Fuel New Space Race
The Virgin Group have presented the ‘mother’ space-craft that will work as both the sky-crane for Virgin Galactic tourist passengers but also for other enterprises. Virgin plan to build 12 WhiteKnightTwo ships that will carry smaller SpaceShipTwo craft to a height where both craft detaches and after a moment of free fall, the latter will engage its rockets to ride into space – offering its passengers about 20 minutes of time in space and 6 minutes of weightlessness.
