zamboni1138 writes: After years of design and development work SpaceShipTwo made it's first powered flight Monday morning over the Mojave Desert. The spacecraft was carried to launch altitude by WhiteKnightTwo, released and climbed to 56,000 feet during a 16-second burn. The craft was built by Scaled Composites for Virgin Galactic who plans to eventually start space tourism flights.
