Virgin Galactic performs successful test flight of “spaceship VSS Unity




Virgin Galactic has successfully tested its VSS Unity in the flight. Because the experiment was successful, the company is getting closer motorized flight. Which is likely to be implemented next year.

On the Twitter account of Virgin Galactic images were shown of the test flight. In a short video the spacecraft is shown gliding through the air before it lands successfully on Earth. This Virgin Galactic takes his second success in testing the VSS Unity: rather gliding was already completed successfully.
