Our spaceship is designed to carry astronauts but can also take payloads, or a combination of the two. This capability provides the scientific community access to high-quality microgravity, as well as to generally inaccessible regions of the upper atmosphere.

Twelve large windows contain “Halo” surrounds with soft extended edges, allowing astronauts to perfectly position themselves for awe-inspiring views, from the infinity of outer space to the beauty of our home planet

The cabin includes a first for space travel, a large, circular mirror on the aft bulkhead which, by adding a tint to the reflective surface, allows astronauts to view themselves weightless while illuminated by the natural brightness of the Earth.

Our Future Astronauts have made clear that photos and videos of their spaceflight experience are of paramount importance. 16 cameras will provide everything from the first Instagram posts to a beautifully edited and historically significant personal movie.

SpaceShipTwo Unity's cabin is sized to allow for an out-of-seat weightlessness experience for the astronauts on board. Soft cabin surfaces and elements become hand and footholds, allowing astronauts to explore the cabin.

Seatback screens provide digital flight data to connect each astronaut to the flight deck. Personal, integrated communication systems complement the screens with a direct connection for each astronaut to the two space pilots.

Mood-lighting is used to subtly reflect back and elevate the human responses to each stage of flight. At the pinnacle, as the Earth comes into view against the black sky of space, all lighting is extinguished, bringing an instant focus to the profoundly beautiful vista.

Each individually designed seat has been engineered to match the dynamism of the flight. A pilot-controlled recline mechanism optimally positions astronauts to manage G-forces on boost and re-entry and frees up cabin space to maximize an unrestricted float zone when in zero G.

Providing safety without distraction, quietly absorbing periods of sensory intensity, and offering each astronaut a level of intimacy required for personal discovery and transformation. Take a look at the interior design of our spaceship cabin.
