Fred Martino and a studio audience ask questions of Spaceport Executive Director Christine Anderson and Virgin Galactic Senior Program Manager Mark Butler.
Editor’s Note: Kind of disappointed with the questions. If I were a New Mexico taxpayer who contributed to this $209 million project, I would have grilled Butler on the precise status of SpaceShipTwo’s engine and why they’re still working on that after eight years.
Butler is reassuring but in a rather vague way. I will believe this when I see SpaceShipTwo flying overhead with a full engine capable of getting into space. I’m hoping that happens next year.
