race for space
Richard Brenson of Virgin Galactic will go into space on July 11, while Jeff Bezos of Amazon Blue Horizon will fly into space on July 20. The visits of the two billionaires will also mark the beginning of the race to go to space.
Here are the details of Virgin Galactic Spaceship
The spaceship going on this mission named Unity 22 will go to an altitude of 80 kilometers in space. There will be a total of 6 people in it as a crew. It will be launched through a carrier aircraft and return via runway landing. It will have an airplane size window and so far this spaceship has had three flights.
In this way the complete mission will be completed
The White Night Carrier Aircraft will take the spaceship to an altitude of 50,000 feet. After separation here, the spaceship will give the rocket engine a speed of four thousand kilometers. After this the rocket will enter space at an altitude of 100 km. And at an altitude of 80 km, the passengers of the spacecraft will feel weightlessness for five minutes. After that the return journey will start. Upon re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere, the spacecraft’s rudder wings will begin to open. At an altitude of 22.9 km, the spacecraft’s wings would be fully opened and the spacecraft would traditionally land from the landing gear and skid.
Brenson’s India Connection
Brenson’s great-grandmother was from Cuddalore, Tamil Nadu. His name was Aria. Yes, Brenson had revealed this in his India tour in 2019. He also got a DNA test done, which confirmed his India connection. He prefers to call himself Namma Oru Payan (boy from our village).
