Virgin Galactic sets date for suborbital spaceflight
Posted: Sat, May 20, 2023, 10:15 AM ET (1415 GMT)
Virgin Galactic will conduct first suborbital spaceflight in nearly two years on May 25. The company announced early Wednesday it set that date for a SpaceShipTwo flight from Spaceport America. Virgin Galactic disclosed last week the six people — two pilots and four company mission specialists — who will fly on a mission called "Unity 25" by the company. The flight will be the first powered flight by the suborbital spaceplane since a July 2021 launch that took company founder Richard Branson to space.
