Explosion at Scaled Composites

As a "Private Space" advocate, I was upset this evening to discover that there had been an explosion at a rocket testing site for Scaled Composites.

Scaled Composites is the company that won the X-Prize for launching the first ship to 60 miles and then repeating with the same ship within 2 weeks. Since then, they have been working with Richard Bransen to create ships that will carry paying passengers to the edge of space.

2 people killed, others injured.
