Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Virgin Galactic rocket ship touches down after soaring to space” – below is their description.
Billionaire Richard Branson has flown to the edge of space, fulfilling a lifelong dream: making space tourism a reality.
The VSS Unity vessel reached 88km (about 55 miles) above the surface of the Earth – where they experienced a few minutes of microgravity.
The 70-year-old British entrepreneur won the billionaires’ space race, beating Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and Space-X founder Elon Musk to space.
Al Jazeera’s Rob Reynolds reports from the Spaceport in New Mexico, US.
