  • ANALYSIS: NTSB will have no quick answers after Virgin Galactic crash

    News | 06 Nov 2014 12:52 | Stephen Trimble

    Structural failure – not a faulty rocket motor – has quickly emerged as a key focus of the investigation into the 31 October crash of the Scaled Composites SpaceShipTwo that killed a test pilot and launched a new crisis for Virgin Galactic and the nascent suborbital space tourism industry.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-NTSB-will-have-no-quick-answers-after-Virgin-Galactic-crash-405675/
  • 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/
