The Virgin Galactic company, which has performed a successful test of the VSS Unity space plan, has taken an important step in the way of sending tourists in the distance.

During the company’s three-year test, the spacecraft landed 15 kilometers high and safely landed. Richard Branson, the founder of Virgin Galactic, announced that in the second version of the SpaceShipTwo (officially called VSS Unity) he will make suborbital test flights for passengers until April. The company’s customers include more than 700 prominent customers, including Brad Pitt and Katy Perry, and these rich customers expect to be out on space tours by the end of the year for $ 250 a thousand dollars.

Although Virgin Galactic has given so much importance to the tests that it is crucial to have a successful experience, the accident, which broke out in 2014 and lost the life of a crew, plays an important role. In 2014, the SpaceShipTwo crashed after an explosion of a motor that fired at a height of 13 kilometers during the test flight. It took the company two years to get approval from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to fly the SpaceShipTwo again.

The company’s yesterday’s 7th test was about 15 kilometers high. The company made the statement that the maximum speed that can be reached without igniting the rocket motor is reached. It was also emphasized that the test was successful and that a comprehensive analysis was carried out before the test. Meanwhile, during the flight to Unity, 450 liters of water representing rocket fuel were taken.

Unlike other commercial spaceflight companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin, Virgin Galactic plans to fly without using a conventional rocket launcher. Galactic said that after a thrilling and dynamic rocket trip, there will be a dramatic transition to silence and true sedimentation. Looking at the tests, Virgin Galactic may be the first company to fly long commercial flights before SpaceX. Richard Branson points out April 2018 for this issue and says he will be disappointed if not. In the meantime, it is necessary to go up about 80 kilometers to get out.
