Virgin Galactic launches third spaceflight from New Mexico
The race to carry vacationers into house is heating up as Virgin Galactic has launched their third spaceflight and the primary from its New Mexico port, in response to ANU cosmologist and astrophysicist Dr Brad Tucker.
“Virgin Galactic is really the only company focussed on just tourism, so fair their previous flights have only centred out of California the Mojave Desert but they have always had a second port out in New Mexico and this is where they’ve launched for the third time,” he advised Sky Information.
“This is a really big step because what Virgin Galactic really wants is, just like Virgin Airlines, serving multiple cities and locations, multiple people going up, and they’re really trying to push to get their first commercial flight.”
Dr Tucker stated a difficulty with spaceflights like Virgin Galactic need to do is there’s uncertainty concerning the “carriage responsibilities” of the corporate and there are points relating to how docs will deal with house vacationers if one thing goes unsuitable.
“There are some obligations but there are a lot of waivers that say not only if something happens in space but what happens if they get sick or if they don’t adapt well to it and they come back down and have a health problem.”
