What looks like being the world's first commercial space plane has just passed another technical milestone.

Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo has just flown faster and higher than ever before on its journey to take ordinary, fare-paying customers 70 miles above the earth.

The first passengers should be floating around in zero gravity in around a year's time.

But they wont call themself Astronaut or Kosmonaut or Spacionaut or Taikonaut. For this previleg you must round the earth once in a spacecraft, at minimum.
