SpaceShipTwo Breaking The Sound Barrier

Awesome image of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo while in high altitude. Orbital human spaceflight, any takers?

SpaceShipTwo just finished its third rocket-powered test and reached the highest altitude its ever been at 71,000 feet by hitting a maximum velocity of Mach 1.4. You can see the new reflective coating on the rocket plane's tail booms which perfectly reflects the flame and our Earth.

You can see more photos at the link below...
