Two important SS2
systems, the RCS and thermal protection coating, were tested during the flight in preparation for upcoming full space flights.
We investigated the presence of SS2
in blood and tissue samples from pigs on PRRS- and non-PRRS-affect ed farms by bacterial culture (online Technical Appendix Table).
Scaled Composites remains fully committed to the final testing stages of the WK2 and SS2
flight programmes before the start of Virgin Galactica[euro](tm)s commercial operations.
From a spaceport built in New Mexico, USA, by UK architect Lord Foster, WhiteKnightTwo will take the SS2
, with six passengers and two pilots, to a point about 50,000ft (15,240m) up before the SST rockets into space.
Branson and other passengers will be able to float around the cabin due to weightlessness before the SS2
effectively becomes a glider for its return to the spaceport.

is designed to be carried by Mothership WhiteKnightTwo before firing its rocket engine to climb beyond the earth's atmosphere.
will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere using a feathering device that will allow the entire tail structure of the spacecraft to rotate upwards to about 65[degrees] to create very high drag to slow it down.
TOMORROW: SKY: Coventry City v Ipswich Town (Championship, SS2
force transducer has been engineered specifically for the precision measurement of extremely low forces in the range of A30g.
The spaceflight won't last long before the attractive force of gravity pulls SS2
back toward Earth.
They found that SS2
caused actin filaments to clump together--or bundle--which stopped plant cells from dividing.
