ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Monday’s Tech Beat takes us out of this world — not once, but twice.

Virgin Galactic has cleared a major Federal Aviation Administration hurdle after being granted the license they need to fly tourists to space.

Meanwhile, Rosie the Rocketer, a mannequin inspired by Rosie the Riveter, will hitch a ride on a Boeing CST-100 Starliner.

A little closer to the surface of the planet, a hoverboard has been seen flying over Times Square in New York. The mystery man is garnering internet attention as well as an investigation from the New York Police Department.
