The Virgin Galactic team has resumed test flights and test motor flights - because they're more exciting than anaylsis - right?
While safety is always the number one priority for the world's first commercial spaceline, Virgin Galactic are thrilled that test flights are back underway.
They wrote on Facebook: "Our team at Scaled and elsewhere has resumed such testing, with WhiteKnightTwo and SpaceShipTwo taking to the skies once more and another test firing of the full scale RocketMotorTwo all within the last week or so.
"The best way to learn is by doing, so we love to share news like this! Each test brings us closer to routine commercial spaceflight and to flying our future astronauts safely into space."
Head over to Scaled Composites for details explanations of the testing going on.
Meanwhile, Virgin Galactic opened a new office in Las Cruces earlier this week and are gearing up for a big UK event coming soon.
