Virgin Galactic has designed its Starship III spacecraft with a modular design that will lay the foundation for the design and production of future vehicles. The spacecraft will begin ground testing, with glide flights scheduled for this summer from the US spaceport in New Mexico.
The introduction of the Class III of its spacecraft is a real milestone in Virgin Galactic’s multi-year effort to aims to reach the figure of 400 flights per year per spaceport.
Richard Branson’s dream
Virgin Galactic spaceships are purpose-built to offer a new perspective to the thousands of people who will soon be able to experience the wonder of space flight. As a Class III spaceship, the VSS Imagine is not only beautiful to look at, it represents all the great accomplishments, creations and changes that start with an idea.
