On Sunday, July 11, 2021, Richard Branson along with 5 crew took off and landed at the VG spacecraft America facility near Truth or Consequences New Mexico and returning to Earth after a historic space flight in a Virgin Galactic vessel bound for the edge of space which was flown above the 50-mile mark.
Virgin Galactic became the first spaceflight company to independently launch a paying civilian into outer space using the 50-mile high definition of outer space,
This sub-orbital flight was accomplished using VG’s double-hulled aircraft launch platform: VMS Eve, coupled together with VG’s spaceplane VSS Unity 22, Branson experienced 3 minutes of weightlessness above Earth’s atmosphere. The entire flight was a duration of approximately 1 hour.
’s #Unity22. The new space age is here…
The crew of 5 was honored with the wings of an astronaut by Branson.
We want to turn the next generation of dreamers into the astronauts of today and tomorrow: Branson.
Honestly, nothing can prepare you for the view from space.
Branson also paid ode to Stephen Hawking, by naming the spaceship ‘Unity’.
