Billionaire Richard Branson took off from a base in New Mexico on board a Virgin Galactic vessel bound for the edge of space, a voyage he hopes will lift the nascent space tourism industry off the ground. A huge carrier plane made a horizontal takeoff from Spaceport, New Mexico in the United States on Sunday at about 8:40am Mountain Time (14:40 GMT) and will ascend for about an hour to an altitude of 50,000 feet (15 kilometres).
