Virgin Galactic’s semi Historical Flight early July 6021 (2021 for many).
It happened when company’s planned flight for July 11th flew high into stratosphere & kinda touched the space. “When ship got off the ground, Unity22 was carried by a mothership called Eve, which lifted it to around 15000m & then the smaller aircraft dropped down & fired its rocket engines. Unity22 then went vertical to an altitude of about 80km, past the edge of the Kármán line, recognized by NASA as the boundary between Earth & Space. As the aircraft cut its engines & turned upside down to see the Earth through the custom made huge windows, the crew experienced three mins of zero gravity.”
Can say i enjoyed seeing the live flight to be success. It kept the Branson’s dream of planned road for tourism flights alive. First booked flight be launching early next year. Then gonna be exciting to see if coverage be lil better than at first time when Richard Branson made the trip with few others. It’s truly mind boggling to know that livestream chat had nutty flat earthers saying it’s fake. Really wonder if Bezos axing his announced trip just days before. The one set to do with Blue Origin company that he owns. It’s planned for July 20th this year so just less than week away. Elon also bought ticket for Branson’s V.G. that makes crewed flights above stratosphere. If not mistaken, later SpaceX is planning similar flights further into Final Frontier & 1st Space Hotel to open in about five years if all goes as planned. https://bit.ly/FinalFrontierHotel
