Virgin Galactic is preparing for the first manned test flight into space

VSS Unity spacecraft launches into space from New Mexico.

Virgin Galactic said it plans to launch its first manned test flight into space from New Mexico this month.

The VSS Unity spacecraft conducted two previous test space flights from Mojave, California, before returning to Spaceport America in New Mexico.

The tests included planning flights without an engine. The new space flight is scheduled for November 19-23.

The spaceport will become Virgin Galactic’s base for sending passengers on short trips high above Earth, starting with billionaire founder Richard Branson next year. The company does not specify a specific date for this event.

Unity rises under a special jet stream and goes to a great height, where its rocket engine ignites.

Suborbital flights involve sending the device to an altitude of at least 80 km. At the end of the flight, the vehicle will descend and land.
