Virgin Galactic Space Flight Test Comes up Sometime this Fall

Virgin Galactic says its first space test flight happens sometime this fall. Company President Mike Moses spoke to state lawmakers yesterday, saying the test launch into space will happen from the company’s Spaceport America location it leases in the desert near Truth or Consequences. Moses said the test launch is the last stage of development prior to the inauguration of Virgin Galactic’s manned commercial spaceflights. A firm date for the test flight is still pending.
