Virgin spaceship passes technical milestone
« on: September 07, 2013, 03:06:22 AM »


What looks like being the world's first commercial space plane has just passed another technical milestone.


Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo has just flown faster and higher than ever before on its journey to take ordinary, fare-paying customers 70 miles above the earth.

The first passengers should be floating around in zero gravity in around a year's time.

When they allow a Dude to spark up a fatty I'll consider it.

The price has come down too! It's now only 150000 uk clams! it was 250! Give it a few years and if I can still pass the medical I'll sell my son and I'll be off! ;)

Nice pad they got there, completely unspoiled. Zesty coitus in zero gravity; wave of the future, dudes. ;D

With NASA's shutdown, looks like corporate space planes are the only way we're getting into space now.

You would definitely have to be wearing something under your bathrobe because it may float up when you have hit the 70th mile. Not that a Dude would be able to afford the ticket ... not with so many ringers and modestly priced receptacles out there.
Dude or Dude not. There is no should.
