Rocket cabin is ready

Virgin Galactic did show today what my rocket looks like from the inside. The public presentation was held virtually via YouTube and there were 20,000 of us watching the live broadcast. After that, VG customers had their own 45-minute meeting where they were allowed to ask questions. VG has taken the wishes of the passengers into account in its plans, and SpaceShipTwo is probably the first spacecraft in which the wishes of customers have been the focus of interior design.

The rocket is really stylish inside, spacious and there are enough windows. The pilots have 5 windows and there are 12 more windows in the cabin. The windows in the cabin are about 2 times larger than the windows in ordinary planes and the you can hold window frames. There is more legroom than on the planes I usually fly. As a Finn, I appreciate that blue and white have been used in the interior. Flight information e.g. speed, altitude and remaining time are easily visible. The windows are easy to go to and the seats are really stylish. The seats can be changed to suit all sizes. There is no need for your own camera on the flight, as 16 cameras record the events of the flight. Some cameras can automatically take space selfies. We don't have a helmet on the flight. For communication, we get earbuds with which pilots and passengers can communicate.


The interior of the rocket did exceed my own expectations. If you want to look for something negative then there is no toilet and no taxfree on this flight.


Now the rocket is completely ready. I look forward to test flights continuing soon. Last time the test flight had three people, now VG could do a test flight with full cargo i.e. two pilots and six passengers.
