SpaceShipTwo Completes Second Powered Test

SpaceShipTwo Completes Second Powered Test

Many of us remember when SpaceShipTwo crashed during testing back in 2014. It was a major setback for Virgin Galactic, but they kept plugging away. Now they’re back on track with a second powered test of the second SpaceShipTwo. The first flight happened earlier this year. During this week’s test, the vehicle reached a speed of Mach 1.9 at an altitude of approximately 115,000 feet.
