Daily Record - Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic closer to space travel with first SpaceShipTwo powered flight, Apr 29, 2013

The SpaceShipTwo pictured in previous years
 "A SPACESHIP backed by Sir Richard Branson has made its first powered flight in a test that moves Virgin Galactic toward its goal of flying into space later this year. While SpaceShipTwo did not break out of the atmosphere during the test flight, it marked a significant milestone for Virgin Galactic, which intends to take passengers on suborbital joyrides. During the early morning flight, SpaceShipTwo, strapped beneath a twin-fuselage jet, took off from an airport runway in the Mojave Desert north of Los Angeles. The jet released SpaceShipTwo, which ignited its engine for 16 seconds, then glided to a safe landing."

The Petition Site - India: Take Violence Against Women Seriously, Apr 29, 2013

Please sign the petition today!
 "The rape of a five-year-old in Delhi has sparked new protests in India demanding more action from the government to curb the nation's rape epidemic. Allegedly, local police refused to help find the missing child, who was left for dead for 48 hours after her assault. India has done a lot of soul searching in the wake of a horrible rape and murder last December that exposed a national, pervasive problem with sexual assault against women. The country recently passed new, harsher punishments for rapists, including 20-year mandatory minimum sentences and the death penalty for repeated offenders and in cases where the victim dies."

MAIL ONLINE - Galactic is go! Richard Branson's tourist spaceship makes it first powered flight, Apr 29, 2013

Virgin Galactic's SpaceShip2 under rocket power, its first ever since the program began in 2005.
"The jet released SpaceShipTwo, which ignited its engine for 16 seconds, then glided to a safe landing. Until now, SpaceShipTwo has only performed unpowered glide flights. Several powered flights are planned this summer, culminating with a dash into space targeted toward the end of the year. 'The first powered flight of Virgin Spaceship Enterprise was without any doubt, our single most important flight test to date,' said Virgin Galactic Founder Sir Richard Branson, who was on the ground in Mojave to witness the occasion. 'For the first time, we were able to prove the key components of the system, fully integrated and in flight. "
