Virgin Galactic To Begin Powered Test Flights For Space Travel By Mid-2018

6 July 2017
Bloomberg News reports that Virgin Galactic plans to “resume powered test flights more than 2 1/2 years after the fatal breakup of its experimental rocket plane,” and that Richard Branson plans to make the first flight. Powered tests are slated to take place every three weeks with the aim of extending them into space by November or December, according to Branson. He further said that after his own flight, “full commercial passenger operations should start by the end of 2018.” (Image Credit: Associated Press–©)
