experience-enhancing, pioneering design. Virgin Galactic has striven to remain faithful to that tradition by developing
elegant, experience-focused vehicles for the space launch system, and choosing landmark architecture for our operational
headquarters at Spaceport America, New Mexico. We now look forward to revealing our spaceship cabin design, which is
progressive, beautiful and functional. We are particularly delighted that, under current restrictions, we have been able
to create an experience that we will be able to share with the millions of people around the world who dream of
travelling to space.”

The Virgin Galactic spaceship cabin has taken these design prerequisites and overlaid them with touches and features
specifically created to elevate the experience of space for a new generation of private astronauts.
