    Default Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo: "Unity", tests & updates

    After the crash of SS2 "Enterprise" due to a co-pilot error, VG did preventive redesigns, build SS2 002 "VSS Unity", has 2 more in construction at The Spaceship Factory, and is now starting VSS Unity powered flights. They're also signing up more passenger, NASA, University and commercial microgravity missions.

    They've also signed a deal to do European space flights from the Grottaglie Spaceport at Taranto-Grottaglie Airport in Italy.

    VSS Unity test flight #3, the first to reach "black skies" at an altitude of 52 kilometers - half their 100+ kilometer goal.
