Elevating Unity – Episode 1: Captive Carry

On September 8, 2016, our new SpaceShipTwo–VSS Unity–took to the skies for the first time. This is first ever flight of a vehicle built by our manufacturing organization, The Spaceship Company.

In this video, Mike Moses–our Senior Vice President of Operations, and a NASA veteran who oversaw dozens of successful flights to space–helps explain this flight and how it fits into the context of our full testing program.
