Virgin Galactic spaceflight first ever from New Mexico
Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic completed its third spaceflight and the first ever spaceflight from Spaceport America, New Mexico. Today’s flight sees New Mexico become the third US state to launch humans into space.
VSS Unity achieved a speed of Mach 3 after being released from the mothership, VMS Eve. It reached space, at an altitude of 55.45 miles before gliding smoothly to a runway landing at Spaceport America.
On VSS Unity’s flight deck were CJ Sturckow and Dave Mackay, while Kelly Latimer and Michael Masucci piloted VMS Eve. CJ, who flew as pilot‑in‑command, becomes the first person ever to have flown to space from three different states
Sir Richard has some 600 paying customers – including movie and music stars – waiting to take the same ride.
But they’ll only get their chance once Unity is fully licensed. That ought, finally, to happen by the year’s end.
