I saw this announcement last night on the Space.com website – Virgin Galactic further delays SpaceShipTwo test flights, pushing tourist flights to 2022: https://www.space.com/virgin-galactic-spaceshiptwo-delays-space-tourism-flights-2022. Worth a read if you are into things space-related. There are photos in the link. Much longer article, but here’s some basic information.

Virgin Galactic won’t be launching tourists to space this year after technical tweaks delayed the company’s upcoming test flight by more than two months. 

During a fourth-quarter earnings call reporting financial results from 2020 held on Thursday (Feb. 25), company representatives announced that Virgin Galactic will be delaying the next test flight for its SpaceShipTwo suborbital vehicle to likely May to take care of technical issues, according to SpaceNews. The delay will push the company’s first space tourist flights to 2022.
