Ride on a Suborbital Simulator with Richard Branson

Damon Syson writes about his experience aboard the suborbital simulator of SpaceShip2 with Sir Richard Branson and his son, Sam. It sounds like something I would like in my den :)

The most surprising thing are the visuals.

With three screens in front of you and various cool-looking dials, you really do feel like you're in a spaceship.

The rear-view screen is especially impressive – I watch the coast of southern California vanishing behind me before everything suddenly goes quiet and black and I'm in space.
