Richard Branson is f’ing awesome.
Virgin Galactic has begun “feathered” test flights of it’s incredible SpaceShipTwo, that will begin shuttling passengers into space in just about a year.
The first test went as planned and showed how the space ship will re-enter the atmosphere and land. The only thing they have not tested yet is the actual rocket launch; that will come in 2012.
So if you have $200,000 just laying around you can join the list of hundreds of people who are already booked for a flight into space.
Pretty darn cool.

Wait, what happens to the two escort jets? I’m confused . . .
That is actually one plane with two fuselage’s. It releases the space ship and then lands.
