The flight took the spaceship to Spaceport America in southern New Mexico, where it will undergo final testing in preparation for commercial operations that will carry tourists on hops into space.

The move to New Mexico marks a significant milestone toward commercial flights, which the company has said it anticipates will begin this year.
