Virgin Spacecraft launched on Thursday became first commercial US flight to go beyond the atmosphere since 2011.

VSS unity takeoff into space on Thursday morning at the Mojave air and spaceport in California and reached an altitude of more than 270,000 feet away so the USA government name it as the edge of the space.

It is also known as SpaceShip Two, was handled by two veteran pilots, Mark "Forger" Stucky, and C.J. Sturckow. VSS founder, Richard Branson, watched the flight from the ground with his son, Sam.

Branson had promised to take the tourist into space, and about 800 people have already paid $250,000 each for tickets. But this test flight over the Mojave Desert carried only a pilot and co-pilot.
