  • Unforgiving void: Spaceflight tragedies remembered

    News | 31 Oct 2014 16:17 | Dan Thisdell

    A sobering week in spaceflight saw the first in-flight fatality in a commercial space programme, as Virgin Galactic lost a test pilot with the breakup of its SpaceShipTwo over the Nevada desert, along with a spectacular but non-fatal launch failure of an uncrewed International Space Station resupply mission. After that ISS mission failure, no less an authority than NASA human spaceflight director William Gerstenmaier took pains to remind everybody that launching rockets is a “tough business” – and warned against complacency as NASA and its private contractors prepare to return to the business of launching American astronauts to orbit.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Unforgiving-void-Spaceflight-tragedies-remembered-405505/
