Space – The Final Frontier

Virgin Galactic’s Spaceship 2 (renamed the VSS Enterprise, probably due to some Trekkie influence somewhere), made its first flight on Monday (BBC footage here). I know someone whose dream it is to work for Virgin Galactic, although frankly we’re all a bit concerned about the big countdown clock that was on their website. Sure, it doesn’t actually SAY it’s counting down to when Richard will flee this Earth with his chosen few, leaving the rest of us to be pummelled by an Asteroid of Death, but you know, it’s a possibility…

And talking of avoiding Asteroids of Death, the UK now has its own space agency, so good vibes towards that. Although given the Government’s record on, well, everything, don’t be surprised if we end up shunted to another part of the solar system or something.
