Wow, amazing!

It's interesting to see the smoke trail visible on the right of the video, left by the SpaceShipTwo: you can see from where it bursted till where it arrived at the top point, and then redescended

Sweet!

Does it "gilde" to a landing, or is it a "power-assisted" landing?

Sorry, haven't kept up with the articles to know.

After an initial burst from it's engine it glides all the way down. I envy our grand children and great grand children who will see this as a primitive curiosity, I hope...

Key word: Hope.

This was really neat to watch.. Definitely sharing.

WhiteKnight is quite impressive too; carrying Spaceship Two to a height above that of commercial airliners is no trivial endeavor.

I wonder if people will have to sign a paper stating that they (passengers) will not talk about what they see. There are a lot of huge craft out there.
