I cannot believe this!!

Stephen Clark at SpaceFlight  Today reports in detail>>>Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo rocket plane crashed during a powered test flight over California’s Mojave Desert on Friday, leaving one pilot dead and another seriously injured, according to news reports.

“Virgin Galactic’s partner Scaled Composites conducted a powered test flight of SpaceShipTwo earlier today, the company said in a statement. “During the test, the vehicle suffered a serious anomaly resulting in the loss of the vehicle. The WhiteKnightTwo carrier aircraft landed safely. Our first concern in the status of the pilots, which is unknown at this time. We will work closely with relevant authorities to determine the cause of this accident and provide updates as soon as we are able to do so.”

Branson has not tweeted yet. He's doing Halloween promos somewhere in the West and sadly this kid's costume is an irony.
