Virgin Galactic Flight – level 3

11-04-2018 07:00

Virgin Galactic reached an important milestone, as its new ship, VSS Unity, made its first successful solo flight. It rocketed up high over California’s Mojave Desert.

The feat is a huge step towards the company’s goal of taking tourists into space. The flight is the first since the fatal crash of its predecessor, VSS Enterprise, in 2014.

Difficult words: feat (an achievement), fatal (causing death or destruction), predecessor (the thing which came before the new one).
