Richard Branson's space-tourism venture, Virgin Galactic, is planning to go public, creating the first listed human spaceflight firm.The company believes it is at an "inflection point" in its development as it moves toward launching commercial operations, and said it had overcome a number of the technical hurdles required to make the company profitable.In December, Virgin Galactic's tourism spaceship climbed 82 kilometers above California's Mojave Desert, reaching for the first time what the company considers the boundary of space. Virgin Galactic also recently announced it is moving more than 100 employees from Mojave, California, to a spaceport in New Mexico where it plans to conduct commercial operations.
