Virgin Galactic to start final test flight missions before sending Branson and paying tourists into space

16 years after its founding, space tourism company Virgin Galactic could soon be ready to take passengers on commercial suborbital flights.

According to a report from CNBC, the company has filed documents with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to begin the final leg of test flights of its SpaceShipTwo shuttle spacecraft.

It plans to launch the VSS Unity carrying two pilots from its Spaceport America operating base in New Mexico within a window starting on 22 October.
