ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- For more than a decade, Virgin Galactic has worked to launch commercial spaceflights from southern New Mexico's Spaceport America. Could they now be just months away from their goal?

Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson says they could go into space in about three months, and he thinks he himself could be in space in six months. Business Insider reports that he made the comments at a forum in Finland.

Virgin Galactic has spent the last 13 years working to launch commercial spaceflights. The project has hit delays, including a fatal crash in 2014.
