yesterday was a big step of space tourism and for the team of +Richard Branson and +Virgin Galactic . After some rumor, finally the #SS2 with WK2 take-off from the spaceport in Mojave, California, USA.
For the first time, the spacecraft SpaceShipTwo (SS2) fired her rocket motor in flight. The vehicle exceeded the speed of sound.
