PostSubject: Virgin Galactic   Wed May 23, 2012 9:00 pm

Virgin Galactic is a company within Richard Branson's Virgin Group which plans to provide sub-orbital spaceflights to space tourists, suborbital launches for space science missions and orbital launches of small satellites. Further in the future Virgin Galactic hopes to offer orbital human spaceflights as well. Virgin Galactic's spacecraft are launched from a large aeroplane, giving the spacecraft more initial speed and altitude than if it were launched from the ground.

The Mothership:

The White Knight One and White Knight Two are special aeroplanes functioning as mother-ship and launch-platform for the spacecraft SpaceShipOne and SpaceShipTwo respectively. The motherships are large fixed-wing aircraft. They have two hulls, linked together by a central wing.

Overview of the spacecraft flights:

It is planned that the spacecraft will be robust and affordable enough to take paying passengers ($200,000 per person with a $20,000 deposit). As of September 2011, there are around 500 ticket-holders in line to fly with Virgin Galactic. Notable passengers that have already submitted their deposit include Tom Hanks, Ashton Kutcher, Katy Perry, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie.

The craft is projected to be a six passenger, two pilot craft. Its planned trajectory will overlap the Earth’s atmosphere at 70,000 feet (21,000 m), which will make it a sub-orbital journey with a short period of weightlessness. The spacecraft, SpaceShipTwo, will be carried to about 16 kilometers or 52000 ft by a carrier aircraft, White Knight II. At that point, when the carrier aircraft reaches its maximum height, the SpaceShipTwo vehicle will separate and continue to over 100 km (the Kármán line, a common definition of where "space" begins). The time from liftoff of the White Knight booster carrying SpaceShipTwo until the touchdown of SpaceShipTwo after the sub-orbital flight will be about 2.5 hours.

The sub-orbital flight itself will only be a small fraction of that time. The weightlessness will last approximately 6 minutes. Passengers will be able to release themselves from their seats during these 6 minutes and float around the cabin.

In addition to the sub-orbital passenger business, Virgin Galactic will market SpaceShipTwo for sub-orbital space science missions and market WhiteKnightTwo for "small satellite" launch services. They had planned to initiate RFPs for the satellite business in early 2010, however flights had not materialized as of 2012.

Pernah saya bahas sih om, walaupun tempat kurang tepat. Soalnya saya ngebahasnya di diecast topic. Ini link nya. Mungkin bisa membantu: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Virgin Galactic menarif $200.000/ person untuk space travel, tapi sampe sekarang belum terlaksana sih. Kalo yg DP sih udah banyak banget. Mulai dari orang2 kaya di US, sampe ke celebrities.

Betul om. Ini buatan GJ. Most probably kenapa mereka nggak muncul di listnya GJ, karena ini pesanan langsung dari Virgin Galacticnya. Bisa di check disini om: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] atau kalo om El Erief mau, bisa contact om Raymond (Daikong - Malaysia)
