Having a horrible day. Space Ship Two. 'Nuff said.
Once again, I feel like my heart has been torn right out of my chest.
Only this time it's much MUCH worse than with Dream Chaser. My heart goes out not only to the family of the pilot who was killed but to ALL the team members at Scaled Composites and Virgin Galactic. This is an absolutely devastating day in so many ways.
Coming so soon after that private space launch disaster of the Antares, I wonder if people are going to be taking a hard closer look at the whole idea of privatized space flight.
