The countdown is on for the first powered SpaceShipTwo flight on Monday. And you can feel the excitement here in Mojave! It’s a mixture of anticipation, nerves and sweat (the last bit being from both hard work and the desert temperatures, which are beginning to climb right up the old thermometer).
WhiteKnightTwo is out on the ramp today, presumably with SpaceShipTwo underneath it. (I couldn’t tell from the highway.) They’re out getting some sun for their big day in the Sunday which, ironically, will actually take place on Monday.
