Space travel for travelers could be started within a year on Virgin Galactic. There SS2 reached the stratosphere for the first time by hitting 69,000 feet above the earth! The craft reached Mach 1.43 in the test flight.
Have you made your reservation for the first commercial space flights on Virgin Galactic?
Sir Richard (Branson) said the team is currently in the process of finalizing cabin interiors, flight suits and other small details before offering 'hundreds of aspiring astronauts a safe and awe-inspiring journey' into space.
A spokesman for the company told MailOnline: 'Over the coming months we will undertake more powered flights, extending the burn time of the rocket and therefore the speed and altitude until we reach our space altitude goal around the ends of the year.'
Virgin Galactic will conduct some more space flights and move its operations to Spaceport America in New Mexico before the first passengers venture into space.
The company said: 'The inaugural commercial flight will see Richard, Sam and Holly Branson all become astronauts.'
The company has already completed one supersonic flight of its passenger-carrying reusable space vehicle.
