I'm excited by space tourism. If I had a spare £150,000, I could launch into space in the next few years. But on Friday, tragically, a Virgin Galactic spaceship crashed on a test flight, killing one pilot and injuring another.
SpaceShipTwo transforms its shape to slow itself down when re-entering the atmosphere. It looks like this transformation happened far too early.
It could take a year to work out what went wrong. Space is the most exciting destination I can think of for a holiday. But is space travel safe enough for the public?
