More VSS Enterprise News

More news about the VSS Enterprise, another successful test flight. This time the VSS Enterprise (also know as SpaceShipTwo) did a solo flight.


Private spaceship makes solo flight


Virgin Galactic's space tourism rocket SpaceShipTwo has made its first solo glide flight in California.

SpaceShipTwo was carried aloft 13,700 metres on Sunday morning by its mothership and released over the Mojave Desert.

Company officials say SpaceShipTwo then landed at an airport runway on its own followed by the mothership. The entire flight took about 25 minutes.

SpaceShipTwo is undergoing rigorous testing before it can carry tourists to space. In the latest test, SpaceShipTwo did not fire its rocket engine to climb to space.
