Virgin Galactic's Richard Branson to launch himself into space today; power the next space age
A twin-fuselage carrier aircraft, VMS Eve, will take off with VSS Unity and release it at the height of roughly 50,000 feet (15,000m). VSS Unity pilots Dave Mackay and Michael Masucci will then ignite its rocket engines, muscling the spacecraft to Mach 3 above the 50 miles (80km) altitude, which is considered the boundary of space.
