Watch: Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo reaches its highest altitude yet

Today, Virgin Galactic launched its SpaceShipTwo rocket to an altitude of 170,000 feet (32 miles), which was high enough for the pilots to see the black ‘sky’ of space as well as a beautiful view of Earth. This is the highest Virgin Galactic has been able to fly their commercial spacecraft so far. The purpose of today’s flight was to test various functions of the spacecraft.

GeekWire has a detailed report of today’s event.
