You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.
Will SpaceShipTwo take passengers into space this year? Branson says yes, Messier says probably not.
