New WhiteKnightTwo Photos, VG Profits

Virgin Galactic, not to be outdone by the space tourism news that other companies have been releasing this past week, have just released a bunch of new photos of the first SpaceShipTwo! The pictures clearly show the progress of the Enterprise's assembly, and with any luck this will be the first dedicated tourist spacecraft. Take a look yourself!

Edit: This is WhiteKnightTwo, named Eve, and not SpaceShipTwo as I had originally made a fool of myself by assuming.

Also in the news was an interesting little tidbit about Virgin Galactic: they actually reported a slight profit in a recently released financial statement. This is no doubt partially due to the SpaceShipTwo ticket deposits that I mentioned in the last post.

Progress: 3.89%  Flight Time: 0:05:50
