Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo made its first solo glide flight on Sunday in the Mojave Desert in California, marking a step forward in the company's plans to offer trips to outer space for tourists.
Virgin claims to have sold over 700 seats so far, at a mere $200,000 each.
The flight was captured on video along with a reaction from Sir Richard Branson.
