Virgin Galactic Unveils New Suborbital Spaceplane

Virgin Galactic has revealed its latest suborbital spaceplane, a vehicle that looks similar to its existing SpaceShipTwo but incorporates significant structural improvements. The vehicle, built at Virgin Galactic’s facility in Mojave, California, is ready for ground tests there, with a flight test program at Spaceport America in New Mexico slated to begin this summer. Virgin Galactic’s spaceships are designed to take people and scientific experiments to and from suborbital space on rocket-powered space tourism flights.
