Soar with Dawn Aerospace’s space plane on its 1st-ever test flights (video)

Dawn Aerospace’s suborbital space plane flew for the first time last month, and a new video takes you along for the ride.

The 15.7-foot-long (4.8 meters) Mk-II Aurora, a robotic vehicle that Dawn is developing to carry small payloads to and from suborbital space, conducted five test flights over New Zealand’s South Island between July 28 and July 30.
