Virgin Galactic will be offering short up-and-down trips to the edge of space, essentially like giant roller coaster rides with better views, in its space plane, SpaceShipTwo. For the last 10 years the US Air Force has been flying a small reusable space plane designated the XB, carrying out classified missions in low Earth orbit. This of course makes it something of a magnet for crazy conspiracy theories suggesting it's a weapons platform or it's changing the weather.

A spaceplane is an aerospace vehicle that can fly/glide like an aircraft in Earth's atmosphere and maneuver like a spacecraft in the vacuum of space.
To do so, spaceplanes must incorporate features of both aircraft and spacecraft, occupying an intermediate space between the two.
Orbital spaceplanes are more like spacecraft, while sub-orbital spaceplanes are more like fixed-wing. A spaceplane incorporates aspects of both aeroplanes and concepts were only capable of sub-orbital spaceflight.
