For the first time, US-based Virgin Galactic sent three people to space in a test flight, an effort towards the company’s commercial spaceflight mission.
As per the latest technology news, two pilots directed the SpaceShipTwo rocket plane to a height of 90 kilometres over the Mojave desert after it was dropped from its carrier plane at 45,000 ft.up.
Both the pilots were joined by the company’s chief astronaut instructor, Beth Moses, who had taken the first ride as a passenger.
Spacecraft spent a few minutes in microgravity, which proves the comfort, safety, and workability of the spaceflight for passengers.
Once satisfied with safety and performance, Virgin Galactic has planned to move his operations to New Mexico’s Spaceport America.
Many travelers, including famous celebrities like Lady Gaga and Leonardo DiCaprio, have already placed a large deposit to experience microgravity, where a person is able to leave their seats to float, and then harness back in for moving down and fly back to Earth.
