Virgin Galactic will host a video walkthrough of the crew cabin for private astronauts inside its SpaceShipTwo Unity later this month. The virtual event is expected to coincide with the launch of a new experience for learning about the upcoming suborbital commercial launch service.

What to know

  • Virgin Galactic will stream video of the cabin interior design over YouTube on July 28
  • Safety and functionality are key objectives to the cabin design
  • SpaceShipTwo recently completed a successful glide flight from New Mexico

The company says it has developed “cutting edge digital platforms” to provide “an opportunity for detailed and immersive exploration of the cabin interior” amid travel restrictions and live gathering limitations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
