One dead in Virgin SpaceShipTwo explosion

A pilot is dead and another is injured after a Virgin Galactic spaceship exploded in midair during a test flight over the Mojave Desert in California today.

In a statement, Virgin Galactic said Space Ship Two "suffered a serious anomaly resulting in the loss of the vehicle." It is a devastating setback for the company and its founder Sir Richard Branson.

Officials: 1 pilot dead, 1 injured in SpaceShipTwo test-flight failure

Space Ship Two cost nearly half a billion dollars to develop. More than 700 people have already signed up to fly on a Virgin Galactic spaceship, at more than $250-thousand dollars a ticket.

Virgin Galactic is considered by many to be the best hope in private space exploration. Prior to Friday's tragedy, they were hoping to start flights within months.
