Editor’s Note: This was the first flight since Oct. 4. If we see a cluster of these flights in the days ahead, I would guess they’re gearing up for some flights of SpaceShipTwo with its full propulsion system installed. I reckon they’ll start with some captive carries and then drop tests without firing the engine.
