Good evening, everyone.

Looks like Scaled Composites is going to try to get a SpaceShipTwo powered flight in Wednesday morning before the rainstorm hits on Thursday and everyone scatters for the holidays on Friday.

As always, your trusted correspondent will be live on the scene, Tweeting away @spacecom and giving you all the latest news and information.

If you are already following me, great! Thanks you for your support. If not, start following me so you don’t miss a thing tomorrow morning.

Good flying to Scaled and VG.

    Class D airspace restrictions… looks to be another glide test

    Why was the flight scrubbed?

    Weather. Storm clouds over the entire Antelope Valley. Weather is supposed to be worse on Thursday, and Scaled begins its holiday break with a day off on Friday. Next flight will be in January.

    Better safe than sorry.

    Are we due another cutting edge flight by SpaceX’s Grasshopper or more revelations about MCT to meet our need for commercial space news addiction?
