+ - SpaceShipTwo Aces First Supersonic Rocket Test->

Submitted by astroengine
astroengine (1577233) writes "SpaceShipTwo, a six-passenger, two-pilot suborbital spaceship owned by Virgin Galactic, an offshoot of Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, fired up its rocket engine for the first time on Monday to successful complete a 16-second, supersonic test flight Branson called 'critical.' “It looked stunning,” Richard Branson told Discovery News. “The pilots themselves were tempted to say, ‘Let’s get farther. Let’s just go straight into space today,’ but it’s good sense they decided not to do that and save it up for later on in the year.” The space tourism company has also released an awesome video of the test flight."
