You’ll notice that this is not for the faint of heart.  While that Zero-G portion of the flight may look like fun, take a look at what awaits you and both ends of that experience — a force approaching twice that of Earth gravity.  That’s a pretty scary thought.  But this capability also means that WhiteKnightTwo can also double as a training environment to prepare travelers for the effects of micro-gravity.

But enough about WhiteKnightTwo’s other talents.  Here is today’s photo gallery:
