Style Crush: Mindy Kaling on the Red Carpet
SpaceShipOne, like most of Rutan’s ideas, started as a drawing on a napkin. Those napkins are on display with SpaceShipOne at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Surprisingly, very little needed to be changed from Rutan’s original napkin sketches to the final craft. Scaled Composites and Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group are developing SpaceShipTwo, which is a part of their Tier 1b program for space tourism. SpaceShipTwo will be a larger vehicle, roughly the size of a corporate Gulfstream jet. It will be capable of carrying six passengers and two pilots. Both SpaceShipTwo and its launch vehicle will be built from ultralight composite materials.
