Hey there! So, guess what? Virgin Galactic did something utterly mind-blowing yesterday. They sent a bunch of over-the-moon tourists to, well, nearly the moon! Okay, not the moon exactly, but close enough – the edge of space!
On a thrilling Thursday morning, right around when the coffee’s brewing at 9:20 a.m., the VSS Unity spaceplane – a fancy gadget from Richard Branson’s genius brain (oops! Someone goofed up his name earlier, my bad!) – took a daring plunge from its mother ship high above New Mexico. Then, in a heartbeat, it soared up, taking four awe-struck folks and one cool company guide for a wild ride. And you won’t believe how high they went! We’re talking about a whopping 55 miles – or if you’re into kilometers, that’s a head-spinning 88.51 km. Talk about a morning rush!
Now, let’s keep our fingers crossed for even more jaw-dropping space adventures ahead. Who knows? Maybe you or I could be next on that out-of-this-world ride! 🚀🌌🌠
