Space tourism business Virgin Galactic is planning its Galactic 02 mission to happen on August 10th.
This mission will be Virgin Galactic’s seventh spaceflight, second commercial spaceflight and third spaceflight this year; flying on this occasion three private passengers to space. The flight window will open on August 10th, continuing the Company’s regular cadence of spaceflights and subject to the usual weather and technical considerations.
Details of the flight manifest, including the crew and pilots, will be released at a later date. “The dynamic and inspiring crew onboard will showcase the importance of removing the barriers of entry to human spaceflight,” said Virgin Galactic.
The livestream will be available to watch on the Virgin Galactic website.
