VSS Enterprise Captive Flight Tests Begin

This blogger has been more distracted by the disaster of Obamacare and the effect it is having on this nation. However, I would be remissed in NOT observing a milestone in civilian spaceflight history.

Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo (aka VSS Enterprise), completed its first captive flight test on March 22nd, attached of course to its mothership, White Knight Two.

Reports say that it was a success and the flight returned to earth at Mojave Air and Spaceport without incident.
