Virgin's commercial spaceship takes maiden flight
Virgin Galactic's spaceship, VSS Enterprise, has made its first solo test flight in California.
Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, says his company will be "pushing to the final frontier of space" over the next year.
Virgin Galactic is hoping to become the first commercial "spaceline" with hundreds of customers pre-booking short trips above the atmosphere.
