Death of Rocket Engineers

Three employees of Scaled Composites killed in rocket engine test.

Rocketry is an unforgiving business. I still remember the shocked look of a classmate when I explained nitroglycerine wasn't energetic enough to be a useful fuel. But giving the human race the ability to escape this one fragile planet is a cause worth sacrificing for.
