Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo Animation

While private industry may indeed be able to operate much cheaper and faster, you cannot compare tiny Spaceship Two with Shuttle, as wonderful as it is. Which one orbits? Shuttle (orbital and suborbital are orders of magnitude apart). Which one has a huge payload bay? Shuttle. Which one has unparalleled servicing and repair capabilities? Shuttle. Spaceship Two is an amazing system and I wish it the very best, but the way you speak is as if it has matched or will soon match NASA's accomplishments
