The Ups and Downs (mostly Ups!)

The Ups and Downs (mostly Ups!)

We are very excited that Virgin Galactic’s Spaceship Two successfully glided back down to the dessert floor after release from the mothership.

 

Space is innately a risky business, though the successes outnumber the failures substantially.  That’s why, even though the Soyuz loss is disappointing, I’m looking forward to the next Progress launch, as each of these many successes will lead to the ultimate journey of flying above Planet Earth for all of us!
