Richard Branson's space tourism startup, Virgin Galactic, is moving to New Mexico ahead of its first commercial flight. After two successful test missions of its rocket-powered space plane over the past few months, the company announced on Friday 10, May, 2019, that it will move its spacecraft and 100 of its workers to a building called Spaceport America in the state this summer. They will join about 50 other employees already working there. It will take a few months to settle in, and Galactic will conduct "the final two or three tests" with only test pilots and crew members on board, Branson told CNN Business' Rachel Crane.
