In my continuing coverage of all things related to the not-quite-a-starship Enterprise… Well, SpaceShipTwo cleared another milestone with its first flight test of the ‘feathering’ system it uses to remain stable during re-entry.
Keep in mind, its a powered trip to the edge of space, but its all glide back down.
The video is probably more expressive than I can be:
Obviously a shake-down of the re-entry system is a necessity before we can proceed with attaching the rocket engine. 🙂
