Virgin Galactic Space Lighting

Comfort of the space travellers is very important because there is no other chance of relaxation. Keeping this important thought in view, Virgin Galactic Holdings, Inc., a vertically integrated aerospace and space travel company, has revealed the cabin interior of its first SpaceShip Two vehicle, VSS Unity through a live streaming on You Tube.

Designed by Virgin Galactic in collaboration with Seymourpowell of London, the SpaceShip Two vehicle has included very special lighting and allied design. The colour palette of the cabin has been carefully curated — so that it complements the architecture of the seat, the cabin itself and spacesuits. The golden metallics resemble luminous desert sands, blues conjure celestial spaces and teals inspired by the ocean ground travelers back to earth.

Virgin has pioneered mood lighting on its commercial aircraft, and that idea has been translated by Virgin Galactic, into the new era of commercial spaceflight. Multi-colour LEDs are concealed within the “Halo” window surrounds and are used to subtly reflect back and therefore elevate, the human responses to each of the contrasting stages of flight. At the pinnacle of the experience, as the Earth comes into view against the black sky of space, all lighting is extinguished, bringing an instant focus to the profoundly beautiful vista
