Personal Flight To Space

Virgin VSS Unity

This could be the ship to bring you into space and it just completed its first glide test. Virgin's 'VSS Unity' is designed to seat eight people and capable of repeatedly carrying citizens into space.

The craft is carried into the air mounted to a carry vehicle where it can launch into space. During the glide test, it flew free for 10 minutes.

Personal Flights To Space

Pilots tested its handling and were able to successfully land it. In 2014, Virgin conducted a similar test but unfortunately, that resulted in a crash. Looks like we're getting one step closer to personal flights to space.
