Virgin Galactic spacecraft completes a successful glide test flight ahead of sending tourists into space NEXT YEAR

A Virgin Galactic rocket plane has performed a successful test flight over California.
During the flight, the VSS Unity ship dumped 450 litres of water, simulating the shift in weight that would normally be caused by rocket fuel.
The test, which comes almost three years on since Virgin Galactic’s catastrophic crash, marks an important step towards the firm’s goal of sending tourists into space as early as next year.
