The planned SpaceShipTwo flight from Mojave was scrubbed this morning due to weather. The skies were covered in rain clouds and violated required conditions for a test flight.

The weather is supposed to be worse on Thursday, and Scaled Composites has off on Friday as the holiday season begins. So, it appears there will not be another SpaceShipTwo flight until January.

    You have a minor typo. “do” instead of “due”
