Virgin Galactic has been recognized as a commercial space-line developed by Richard Branson. This spaceline was able to successfully and effectively complete the 3rd rocket-powered supersonic test flight together with the SpaceShipTwo craft, which has the capability to soar up until 71,000 feet on its first flight. This reusable spaceship has been set as the first spaceship that took tourists into the space just this year. Famous individuals as well as celebrities that include Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and the owner of this company, Mr. Branson has reserved their seats beforehand.

Virgin Galactic Spaceline is known as a space-light company under the Virgin Group. This is responsible for developing or creating commercial spacecraft. They have this goal or aim of providing space tourists with suborbital spaceflights, orbital launches designed for the small satellites and suborbital launches for the space science missions Virgin Galactic has also a plan of providing orbital human spaceflights and planning to develop orbital launch vehicle.

The SpaceShip Two developed by Virgin Galactic has been designed in order to provide efficient space travel for the masses. Virgin Galactic has been known by many as the first commercial spaceline in the world. This is one of the most reliable companies who have the capability to discover and pioneer private space travels. So in order to achieve and conquer the heights, SS2 or SpaceShip Two has been airlifted by WhiteKnight Two carrier aircraft with an altitude ranging from 46,000 feet and above, prior ignited the rockets motor during its release. This was able to power up the spaceship following the planned 71,000 feet altitude.

The SpaceShip Two is armed and fortified with highly unique and efficient engine which is being powered through the combination of laughing gas nitrous oxide and rubber compound. Together with the Virgin Galactic Spaceline’s business partner, Space Tourism, the company is continuously working on a lower cost as well as small satellite launcher which has been called as the Launcher One.  This launcher has been designed and will be utilized by WhiteKnight aircraft so that it will be able to bring out small satellites to the LEO or Low Earth Orbit. The two firms have already made a deal stating that they will fly for at least 39 communication satellites to ensure that the planned OneWeb space based communication network will be set for real and it will worked effectively.

The Virgin Galactic Spaceline together with its partner, Space Tourism is expecting that they will roll out the newly developed rocket-planes during the first quarter of the year 2016 and this will be followed by starting the flight tests. So, it is expected that if everything has resulted into a successful one, these two companies or either one of these two firms, will now begin to prepare all the needed things in order to begin flying paying clients and customers. However, based on the history, it shows that the most multifaceted or complex aerospace projects, public or private, are expected to encounter or experience the act of going beyond the deadlines. Everyone should realize or know that this business is a little dangerous and difficult.
