The interior of the SpaceshipTwo was designed in collaboration with Seymourpowell, with input from future customers, doctors, engineers, pilots, and astronaut trainers.
Virgin Galactic, a spaceflight company is developing high-speed mobility in collaboration with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). On May 5, 2020, Virgin Galactic announced a new partnership with NASA, signed a Space Act Agreement to accelerate the development of high-speed technologies. The company is developing high-speed vehicles for commercial aviation. Virgin Galactic collaborated with NASA to drive the United States’ efforts to build technically feasible, high-tech vehicles for potential civilian applications. Now, the company has revealed the cabin interior design of its SpaceshipTwo vehicles that will allow space enthusiasts and astronauts to explore the edge of space.
The cabin is fitted with around 12 windows placed on the roof section and upper side of the spacecraft, through which space enthusiasts and astronauts will observe the surface of the Earth. Passengers will be buckled into specially designed seats during launch and landing. Moreover, each seat is tailored with a digital display that feeds the customer data throughout the flight, as well as connects them to the pilots of the spacecraft. The interior of the SpaceshipTwo was designed in collaboration with Seymourpowell, a London-based design agency, with input from future customers, doctors, engineers, pilots, and astronaut trainers.
According to Virgin Galactic, the new Space Act Agreement will seek to develop high-speed, next-generation, efficient, and safe mobility for point-to-point travel in the United States, with a focus on environmental sustainability and customer experience. According to the CEO of Virgin Galactic, George Whitesides, the company’s innovative technology platform and unique experience will enable the development of new technical steps that will enhance U.S. competitiveness. Moreover, Whitesides noted that this as an area with great development potential that the company will continue to invest in conjunction with the company’s commercial spaceflight operations.
