    Virgin Galactic achieves space on SpaceShipTwo test flight

    https://spacenews.com/virgin-galacti...o-test-flight/

    That altitude exceeds the boundary of 50 miles, or about 80 kilometers, used by U.S. government agencies for awarding astronaut wings. Bailey Edwards, FAA associate administrator for policy, international affairs and environment said in post-flight remarks that (Mark) Stucky and (C. J.) Sturckow would receive FAA commercial astronaut wings from the agency in a future ceremony. Sturckow already has NASA astronaut wings from four shuttle flights.
