Virgin Galactic spaceship crashes on test flight

Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic has crashed during a test flight in California.

Two pilots were onboard the suborbital spacecraft named SpaceShipTwo as it underwent its first powered test flight since January.

Reports say one person has died and another is seriously injured.

The vessel has been developed to carry people to the edge of the space where, for a few minutes, they can experience weightlessness.

More than 800 people have paid or put down deposits to fly aboard the spacecraft.

  1. he should have ask the creator (GOD/JESUS CHRIST TO BLESS his space ship instead of been so lifted up in his heart thinking it is by his power.

  2. This is so unfortunate!  Let the pilot who has passed from this plane of existence be remembered for his sacrifice; he may have saved many lives in the future by smoking out a fatal flaw.
