Wow! What a day for space!
Today (July 11) was Virgin Galactic’s first crewed spaceflight! Their Unity 22 Spacecraft took off in New Mexico, marking the start of commercial spaceflight!
Onboard was Dave Mackay, pilot; Colin Bennet, lead operations engineer; Beth Moses, chief astronaut instructor; Branson, founder of VG; Sirisha Bandla, vice president of government affairs and research operations; and Michael Masucci, pilot.
I’ll let the astronauts speak for themselves about their amazing experience up in space! Watch VG’s Livestream below
