    I'm glad you didn't make me read bad news when I was in a good mood after the America's Cup.
    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!

    "Virgin Galactic unveils ‘VSS Imagine,’ the first of its next-generation spaceship series"

    https://www.cnbc.com/2021/03/30/virg...ii-series.html

    Virgin Galactic on Tuesday unveiled the latest spacecraft addition to its fleet, VSS Imagine, with the spacecraft representing the first of its next-generation SpaceShip III class of vehicles.

    The rollout of VSS Imagine gives the space tourism company a second spacecraft to begin testing, as Virgin Galactic continues to work through final development testing of VSS Unity, with its next spaceflight test expected in May.

    Visually, it is underwhelming. It has a shiny metal hull, but looks like the same basic design as the Spaceship II.

    In the article, it says the main changes are improvements to reduce turnaround time. Apparently more modularity, better organization and easier replacement. A good number of changes but all seem to be evolutionary improvements. It doesn’t sound like anything fundamental was changed.

    At least it's hardware and not powerpoint. Let's hope for them they can have a working craft with this iteration, it's about time.
    With sufficient thrust, water towers fly just fine.

    Past time. I think the whole thing is an idea whose time has come and gone.
