After the unfortunate incident way back 2014 where the first SpaceShip Two (VSS Enterprise) broke up in-flight and crashed in the Mojave desert due to a system failure which killed the pilot, Virgin Galactic is giving it another chance as they recently unveiled the second SpaceShip Two which is named by Stephen Hawking as the VSS Unity. VSS Unity will undergo a test regimen similar to VSS Enterprise, then will embark on testing beyond what Enterprise experienced. The test flights are expected to be fewer, asEnterprise has already tested the design’s responses under numerous conditions. Testing will start with captive carry, progress to free-flight glide testing, then continue with powered test flights. Although everything sounds so great, we are just hoping that this one will bring much success and will not experience the same fate with the VSS Enterprise. What do you think of the new design?
