    The Virgin Galactic rocket plane successfully completed it's first manned test flight yesterday above the Mojave Air & Space Port. Space Ship 2 was successfully dropped from 45,000 feet and landed 11 minutes later on the desert runway. Space Ship 2 was just dropped as it has no rocket motors installed yet. Those tests with the rocket are planned to take place starting next year with then hopefully test flights into space after that.

    Space Ship 2 is designed to fly at Mach 3.5 making it capable of going into space and will also be one of the world's highest altitude gliders. Already there's a waiting list of 370 people paying $200,000.00 for the chance to go into space. Wish I had an extra 2-hundred grand, that would be so cool!
