"Virgin Galactic is a company within Richard Branson's Virgin Group which plans to provide suborbital spaceflights to space tourists, suborbital launches for space science missions, and orbital launches of small satellites. Further in the future, Virgin Galactic hopes to offer orbital human spaceflights as well. Virgin Galactic's spacecraft is launched from a large aeroplane, giving the spacecraft more initial speed and altitude than if it were launched from the ground."

 The company says the reusable space vehicle was carried by airplane to 46,000 feet (14,020 meters) on Friday and then released. The craft then used its rocket motor to reach its highest altitude to date.SpaceShipTwo and its two-member crew then glided to a safe landing in the desert north of Los Angeles.Virgin Galactic says the ten-minute test flight moves the company closer to its goal of flying paying passengers into space.
