Having been a part of the SS1 Core Team, I've always wanted to edit together a music video featuring some of the unedited flight test video footage I have stored away....but this guy did a great job.

You may not like the music (I do) but it goes along very nicely with the violence of boost and re-entry (I had almost forgotten about how badly Mike was being shaken in the seat)....

It needs more of just the pilot shaking. I love that part.

Out of curiosity, did that program result in viable technologies for space travel? I saw the entire TV special, but they never did a follow-up of what’s going on now.

Scaled (as part of Mojave Aerospace Ventures, which is a consortium of Scaled and Paul Allen's Vulcan group) is working with Sir Richard Branson's people on SpaceShipTwo for Virgin Galactic ( http://www.virgingalactic.com/ ), which will actually be a paying-passenger suborbital spacecraft. The movie on the site is very cool.

SS2 uses many of the technologies proved out on SS1 (feathered reentry, hybrid rocket motor, composite pressure vessel primary structure, etc.)
