Virgin Galactic flies its first astronauts to the edge of space, taking one step closer to space tourism Article Link: https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2018/12/13/virgin-galactic-flight-could-send-first-astronauts-to-edge-of-space.html 1. The two pilots on board Virgin Galactic’s spacecraft Unity become the company’s first astronauts. 2. Virgin Galactic said the test flight reached an altitude of 51.4 miles, or nearly 83 kilometers. 3. The spacecraft also carried four NASA-funded technology experiments on board. The U.S. military and NASA consider pilots who have flown above 80 kilometers to be astronauts. The Federal Aviation Administration announced on Thursday that pilots Mark Stucky and C.J Sturckow would receive commercial astronaut wings at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. early next year. Virgin Galactic has more than 600 would-be astronauts signed on to launch, with tickets priced at $250,000 per flight. Branson is now a step ahead of fellow billionaire Jeff Bezos in the space tourism business. Bezos has been pouring nearly $1 billion a year from his Amazon holdings into Blue Origin, the rocket-builder he founded.  #PSA…Twice-delayed Delta IV Heavy launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base now planned for Tuesday Article Link: https://lompocrecord.com/news/local/twice-delayed-delta-iv-heavy-launch-from-vandenberg-air-force/article_3fcb016b-82da-5a07-a529-21d3e8cf5b5a.amp.html The launch of a Delta IV Heavy rocket that had been postponed twice from Vandenberg Air Force Base last week is now slated for Tuesday, Dec. 18.
