Seymourpowell designs Virgin Galactic spaceship cabin to maximise views of Earth

Virgin Galactic has revealed the interior cabin of its SpaceshipTwo craft, designed in collaboration with London studio Seymourpowell to provide "safety without distraction". The craft, dubbed the Virgin Spaceship Unity (VSS Unity), will be designed to take six passengers on a sub-orbital flight into space to view the Earth and experience several minutes of weightlessness at $250,000 per seat. Sub-orbital spaceships don't have the power to achieve and remain in orbit, but instead fly up to a certain height before coming back down. Designed to prioritise the view of the Earth from space, the VSS Unity cabin concept is lined with 12 large, porthole-style windows, six of which are positioned directly next to the individual passenger seats. The cabin interior is complimented by icy hues of white, silver and teal, intended to be reflective of space itself and the Earth below.
