    Commercial rocketplane takes first gliding flight test.

    Virgin Galactic conducted the first piloted gliding flight of its commercial sub-orbital spaceship, the VSS Enterprise, Sunday, releasing the winged rocketplane from the WhiteKnightTwo mothership at an altitude of 45,000 feet above the Mojave Desert.

    With Scaled Composites pilot Pete Siebold and co-pilot Mike Alsbury at the controls, the futuristic twin-tail spacecraft glided to a touchdown at the Mojave Air and Space Port eleven minutes after its release from WhiteKnightTwo, also known as Eve. The craft was not equipped with a rocket motor for the glide test.

    "It was a very important milestone," Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, told CBS News in a telephone interview. "It was one of the three big milestones still to go. To see it successfully drop and successfully glide back down to Earth and to see it perform so well was significant. An incredibly important day."





    Virgin Galactic is building the rocket-powered SpaceShipTwo to carry six passengers and two pilots into space on sub-orbital up-and-down flights that will provide several minutes of weightlessness and a view of Earth previously enjoyed only by government-sponsored test pilots, astronauts and cosmonauts.

    "The next important thing will be the rocket tests with astronauts inside it," Branson said. "In about a week's time, we're going to be unveiling ... the spaceport in New Mexico, and that's a key component of everything. And then, obviously, by the end of next year or the beginning of the following year, we'll be doing our first flights actually into space with people on it."

    Who needs the space shuttle when you can travel in luxury?!?



    [Actually I jest. I am a big proponent of capsules. They are generally far safer than the space shuttle. I just wish the USA would build one on existing technology rather than use older Russian ones.]

    It's 3 MEN. Scott Kelly, Alexander Kaleri, and Oleg Skripochka.

    The photo was taken prior to launch.

    Not sure where you are seeing hair since they all have on hoods.
