Virgin Galactic has rescheduled the ninth flight test of the SpaceShipTwo program for Friday, Feb. 22. The flight window opens at 8 am PST (10 am EST/1500 UTC). I will be tweeting the flight live at

This is scheduled to be the second flight above 50 miles (80.4 km) for the program after the first in December. VSS Unity will carry NASA experiments as it did on the previous flight two months ago.
