Virgin Galactic will soon have two space planes plying the sky, if all goes according to plan. The company's newest six-passenger SpaceShipTwo vehicle, known as VSS Unity, is nearly ready to fly tourists to suborbital space and back. Unity reached space on its two most recent test. The spaceflight company is moving its development and testing activities from Mojave, California, to its commercial-operations headquarters, Spaceport America, in New Mexico. That work is being done by The Spaceship Company (TSC), Virgin's sister manufacturing entity.
