Headed by Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, Launches will first occur at the Mojave Spaceport in California, and will then be moved to the permanent spaceport in Upham, New Mexico. The spaceships used will go110km (or 68.18 miles) high and space flights will last 2.5 hours, carry 6 passengers, and reach a speed of Mach 3.
