Virgin Galactic postpones test flight due to safety concerns

Virgin Galactic has postponed its next test flight due to safety concerns regarding the “strength margins” of materials used in the rocket plane.

The move follows a regulatory investigation into the company’s maiden launch in July, for which founder Sir Richard Branson was on board, and that flagged concerns which Virgin Galactic accepted.
