Space Ship Two is a privately-developed spacecraft for sub-orbital space flight and was built by "The Space Ship Company", a joint venture between Scaled Composites and Richard Branson's Virgin Group. The first "Free Flight" took place on 10 October 2010 from the Mojave Space-port in California. During the 7th "Free Flight" in May 2011 wing-tips with a 65° anhedral were tested in the glide descent.

"Space Ship Two" is 18 meter long offers space for two pilots and six passengers. It is carried to an altitude of 15 km by the "White Knight Two" mother aircraft. There, "Space Ship Two" is released and its rocket engine accelerates it to Mach 3 in 30 seconds. At a speed of 4,200 km/h the engine is switched off and the spacecraft remains in orbit at an altitude of 110 km for about 5 minutes before gliding back to Earth. The first tourist flights are planned for the end of 2012 and cost approximately 200,000 US dollars per passenger.
