维珍银河已达到“Weight on Wheels”建造第二艘商业飞船的里程碑。在这个里程碑中,车辆的所有主要结构部件均已组装完毕,车辆首次展开起落架并自重。这一里程碑标志着维珍银河制造的巨大进步’太空船公司(VGH)的太空飞行器车队’的全资航空航天发展子公司。

This 车轮重量 milestone has been reached considerably faster than it took to get to this stage with the first spaceship in the 维珍银河 fleet, VSS Unity, which is currently in flight test. This pace has been achieved through a more efficient, modular assembly process, as well as experience curve benefits.

由于现在的太空船能够承受自身的重量,因此组装团队正在努力地将车辆连接起来’的集成系统,包括从机身到尾梁的飞行控制系统,以及完成最终的结构封闭空间。

这项工作完成后,将把飞船放在机库中,开始进行综合的车辆地面测试,这将验证所有系统的完整性。此步骤是开始其飞行测试程序的前提。

今天以外’s 车轮重量 milestone for the second space vehicle, the 维珍银河 spaceship fleet is already advancing to its third spaceship, also currently under construction in Mojave. Structural and system part fabrication for that third vehicle is now over 50% complete.

维珍银河公司首席执行官George Whitesides说:“Reaching the 车轮重量 milestone considerably faster than was achieved for VSS Unity is a huge accomplishment and is a testament to the growing expertise and capabilities of the company.

“现在,我们有两艘结构完善的宇宙飞船,而第三艘则取得了良好的进展。这些太空船将通过定期进行太空旅行,为成千上万的私人宇航员提供真正的变革性体验。”
