Space tourism is one thing that the planet is eagerly expecting . If Virgin Galactic’s (a prominent space tourism company) new flights gets approved, travelling to space wouldn’t be just a dream. On Monday, the firm informed that they tested SpaceShipTwo craft this month, after a test got aborted in early December.
The company owned by Richard Branson, said, “The flight window will open on February 13 with opportunities to fly throughout February, pending weather conditions and technical readiness”. He further informed space tourism enthusiasts that pre-flight preparation is already underway at Spaceport America in New Mexico .
The company also added that their space flight would test remedial work first, then call the longer term astronauts to take part. Apparently, SpaceShipTwo, as they call it, was expected to require its first passengers into space later this year.
Till now, 600 people have already paid nearly $250000 for the upcoming journey and therefore the space company calls them “future astronauts”, who are expecting years to require off. In 2014, the event of the flight was delayed thanks to a devastating crash of the primary spacecraft that was attributed to the pilot’s error.
As soon because the spacecraft is fully functional, it’ll be haunted within the sky by another special plane and it’ll be released at high altitude. After a couple of seconds, the spaceship will leave and ignite its engine and go upward into the space. It definitely looks like we are watching the longer term of travel world.
