Virgin Galactic Flight – level 2

11-04-2018 07:00

The company Virgin Galactic wants to take tourists into space, and it recently reached an important milestone. Its new ship, VSS Unity, made its first successful solo flight, as it rocketed up high over California’s Mojave Desert.

The flight was the company’s first one since the fatal crash of its predecessor, VSS Enterprise, in 2014.

Difficult words: milestone (an event, a moment when things change), fatal (deadly or destructive), predecessor (the thing which came before the new one).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
