Photo of the Day: SpaceShipTwo Takes One More Step Towards Its Return to Flight...

Earlier this month, Virgin Galactic posted this photo on Twitter showing the successor to the VSS Enterprise after it was secured to the underbelly of its mothership, the VMS Eve, at The Spaceship Company for a fit-check. While SpaceShipTwo's replacement (which was initially known as the VSS Voyager) is still far from completing construction, it is nice to know that Sir Richard Branson's aerospace firm is making strides towards returning to flight following last October's tragedy in California's Mojave Desert. Can't wait to see this bird soar in the sky once more.
