Virgin Galactic Prepares to Launch First Private Space Tourists
Virgin Galactic is set to launch the first private citizens to space on Wednesday. The two passengers will take off from Spaceport America in New Mexico on the VSS Unity spacecraft. The spacecraft will climb to an altitude of approximately 50 miles, where the passengers will experience weightlessness and have panoramic views of the Earth below. The flight is a major milestone for Virgin Galactic and the commercial space tourism industry.
