Brian Binnie: SpaceShipOne’s Test Pilot for the award winning flight
Richard Branson: Founder of Virgin Group with Virgin Galactic’s revolutionary SpaceShipTwo (VSS Enterprise)
Mike Melvill: SpaceShipOne’s Test Pilot for the first record breaking flight
Burt Rutan: Visionary Aerospace Engineer of SpaceShipOne
