Re-usable space transport company congratulates Virgin Galactic and Scaled Composites on their inaugural flight of SS2

XCOR Aerospace sends its warmest and heartfelt congratulations to its friends and colleagues at Virgin Galactic and Scaled Composites on their successful first powered flight of the Spaceship Two (SS2) suborbital space plane.

XCOR applauds their exceptional teams on taking the next step in the greatest journey the human race has ever known and looks forward to meeting them there, above the clouds, where the adventure has only just begun.

Much work is left for the promise of commercial spaceflight to be realized. XCOR looks forward to working with its colleagues in the Commercial Spaceflight Federation on advancing industry best practices, working on export licensing reform, and ensuring international regulatory frameworks that enable a new industry and inspire a generation of future innovators.

Today is a day to celebrate and acknowledge a job well done. Not only did Virgin Galactic's SpaceShip Two perform its first powered flight this morning, it also broke the sound barrier. Great job, Virgin Galactic and Scaled Composites!
