Virgin Galactic is maybe months away from taking its first tourists into space.
Maybe a year.
Either way its a matter of when.
Yesterday they released a video tour of what the tourist cabin looks like.
“The attention to detail was pretty remarkable. Each headrest had little crevices to accommodate anyone wearing their hair in a ponytail for the flight. The top two seatbelt straps on each chair were connected to protrusions called “presenters,” making it extra easy for customers to find their belts when they need to strap back into their seats. “[Our customers] have different ranges of motion and different amounts of physical strength, so we wanted to make sure that that was very easy to do in zero gravity because people will be putting on their five-point harness in the zero-g,” said Whitesides.
