Two years after a fatal accident put Virgin’s test rocket plane project on hiatus, the new Virgin Galactic’s VSS Unity has completed its very first flight test! The plane, which is made of an all-carbon composite material that can withstand the extreme stress of leaving the atmosphere, is designed as the world’s first commercial aircraft that can take its passengers to space. The plane is designed both for human use as well as transporting small service satellites into the outer atmosphere. The 4-hour test flight went off without a hitch, and shows a promising future for commercial space travel.
