    Cool Super Cool SpaceShipTwo video!

    I don't know if this has been posted before, as the video is a bit old. But awesome never gets old. http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=XBlifr6EQNU
    Go supersonic, float in weightlessness, see curvature of the Earth, wear spiffy red and white space suit...
    I want to GO GALACTIC!
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroes’ wings we fly!

    Yeah, I was wondering that, too. That could be a cool superhero costume.

    Too bad there's not a big "V" on the suit, so that they could call themselves
    Virgin Man/Woman!!!

    ..okay maybe that's not cool.

    If a whole group got caught in a cosmic ray storm, they could be Team Galactic.

    I suppose I ought to point out that the video you've posted has been available on the Virgin Galactic website for a good couple of years now.

    There's loads of other content there as well as more videos. It's well worth a look.

    I wonder what Branson would do with a team of superheroes?

    Every time I see that video, I can't help but think, "If that ain't something that a Bond villian would have, I don't know what is."

    Maybe this could be a comic... call Stan Lee!
    So who would they fight against?

    That would be ConspiratorTM and his ignorant minions!
    The historical record of Apollo is overwhelming - greater than anything you can glean from questions on a bulletin board. That America abandoned Apollo (and the spirit it engendered) is a travesty. To persistently maintain that it never happened in the first place is nothing short of despicable.
