Virgin Galactic delays the start of its paid spaceflights to the end of 2022

Virgin Galactic has suffered yet another setback. On Thursday, the company told CNBC it has delayed the start of its commercial space tourism service to the fourth quarter of 2022. It had previously hoped to begin offering paid spaceflights sometime in the third quarter of next year.

With the delay, the company will begin refurbishing both its carrier airplane and spacecraft this month. Virgin Galactic says it expects the entire process should take between eight to 10 months. As a result of the move, Unity 23, the company’s next flight, won’t take off until mid-2022 at the earliest.

“The re-sequencing of our enhancement period and the Unity 23 flight underscores our safety-first procedures, provides the most efficient path to commercial service, and is the right approach for our business and our customers,” Virgin Galactic CEO Michael Colglazier said in a statement.

The delay is not connected to the recent investigation the FAA conducted into Unity 22, the flight that took Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson to the edge of space. The federal agency cleared the company for future flights after completing the investigation.

Motorola delays its foldable Razr at the 11th hour – Don’t believe the company’s BS

Let me start by saying a couple of things. First, this is my opinion as an experienced tech writer, not hard news. And second, I’m a huge fan of Motorola’s new foldable Razr. Aesthetically, it’s the near-perfect foldable smartphone. Well, for 2019. Nostalgic, sleek, no crease and a solid spec to realistic thermal performance compromise. […]
