Virgin Galactic is set to send its tourism rocket to the edge of space during a major test flight on Thursday. “Our SpaceShipTwo, VSS Unity, is entering the next stage of testing,” explains Virgin Galactic, on its website. “During this phase of the flight program, we will be expanding the envelope for altitude, air speed, loads, and thermal heating. We also plan to burn the rocket motor for durations which will see our pilots and spaceship reach space for the first time.” If successful, the test will be a major step toward the long-delayed dream of commercial space tourism.Two pilots

A number of friends were engineers, designers, managers and test pilots on the SpaceShip One team. Most have moved on or retired now that Branson has taken over SpaceShip Two, although one spent several years managing the SS2 program development before moving to a literally bigger program.

Exciting times, best wishes for success,

If there is one thing I admire about the progressive, socialist left, it’s that they will all come together and repeat the exact same message, the same talking points. It is as if every morning someone sends them a chip to be inserted into the base of their neck that sends a stimulus to their brain. When I watch the repetitive collective messaging of the left in America, it reminds me of the aliens from “Star Trek: Next Generation” called The Borg. Y’all remember The Borg, right? They were the alien life form that was half human, half machine that

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVY BASE, Cuba The Pentagon is shipping a handicapped-accessible cell big enough to accommodate a hospital bed and wheelchair that, in a first, would let an accused war criminal live at the court during proceedings as he tries to recover from multiple spinal surgeries. The Camp Justice sleepover plan represents a reversal in Guantanamo detention center policy, which required that a defendant be returned each night from the court complex to a section of the detention center called Camp 7, the top secret prison for former CIA captives. But the cascading health crises since the summer of 2017

Welcome to Casa de Nancy! Laura Loomer and a group of illegal aliens showed up to Nancy Pelosi’s Napa Valley, CA lawn and set up a sanctuary camp on Monday. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wants open borders so certainly she will welcome the new squatters! This is hilarious. Loomer and gang set up a canopy on Pelosi’s lawn with the word “Immorality” emblazoned in red letters. Pelosi regularly says walls are ‘immoral’ when arguing against President Trump’s proposals for stronger border security which includes a wall. The government shutdown has entered week three, the longest in US history because

Texas has more than its share of musical legends, but it´s hard to argue that two of the state´s most beloved sons are country powerhouses Willie Nelson and George Strait. The two have, remarkably, never performed together on stage throughout their respective impressive careers — but that all changed Saturday night (Jan. 12). At Nashville´s Bridgestone Arena that night, an all-star lineup of more than two dozen acts came together to play tribute to Nelson in a concert dubbed Willie: Life & Songs of an American Outlaw, A Willie Nelson All-Star Concert Celebration. Strait was one of them, and he

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D.-N.Y.), who is now being paid a salary of $174,000 as a member of Congress, is complaining about the financial stress of securing a second apartment. “The thing Republicans taking cheap shots forget to mention is that it’s about having trouble affording a SECOND apartment,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in a Tweet sent out on Sunday. “I live in the Bronx and work in D.C. Need spot in both,” she said.

New York’s largest immigration advocacy group is looking to spend $1 million to convince lawmakers in the state to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses as President Donald Trump cracks down on unlawful entry into the U.S. The New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) plans to increase its lobbying efforts and invest at minimum $1 million on TV, radio and targeted ads on social media, the New York Daily News reported Monday. This could be NYIC’s biggest campaign. “Our goal is to target every single legislator in New York State,” NYIC Executive Director Steven Choi said, according to the NY

There’s an old saying that you can’t fix stupid… It’s a safe bet a San Antonio woman has never heard the “shouting fire in a crowded theater” counter to free speech, given her response to a plainclothes Secret Service agent showing at her door. Some of the exchange was captured on video, with the woman falling back on her right to free speech when the agent confronted her for allegedly asking on Facebook of the president, “Can someone shoot the fool between the eyes already and call it a day.” (Video) “On Thursday, January 10th, 2019 my aunt posted a

The Supreme Court denied an effort to strip acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker’s name from a pending case, swatting down a push to force the justices to send a signal that President Trump’s temporary pick is illegal. Lawyers had asked the justices to remove Mr. Whitaker and substitute Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, arguing that he should be the rightful head of the Justice Department under the law, after former Attorney General Jeff Sessions was ousted last year. The request came in a case involving Barry Michaels, who is challenging a law denying him the right to purchase a firearm

Mika Brzezinski framed it as a "worry," but her statement can also be seen as giving advice [unintentionally, one would hope] to America´s enemies, encouraging them to seize the current moment to act against us. On today´s Morning Joe, Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic imagined America´s adversaries being confused by Trump´s unpredictable behavior. Mika was not confused.

January 15th marks the 10-year anniversary of the miracle flight landing on the Hudson River piloted by Captain Chesley ´Sully´ Sullenberger. Sullenberger and co-captain Jeff Skiles saved all 155 passengers and crew members when they successfully landed American Airlines Flight 1549 in the freezing cold river after the plane struck a flock of Canadian geese, causing both engines to fail just minutes after takeoff. The hero captain and passengers are now recalling the life-changing day they cheated death 10 years later.´I think about not only what we did but what everybody else did,´ Sullenberger, 67, told ABC´s Good Morning America.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, one of the fiercest political critics of socialized medicine, will travel to Canada later this month to get hernia surgery. Paul, an ophthalmologist, said the operation is related to an injury in 2017 when his neighbor, Rene Boucher, attacked him while Paul was mowing his lawn. The incident left Kentucky´s junior senator with six broken ribs and a bruised lung. He is scheduled to have the outpatient operation at the Shouldice Hernia Hospital in Thornhill, Ontario during the week of Jan. 21, according to documents from Paul´s civil lawsuit against Boucher filed in Warren Circuit Court.

Veteran investigative journalist Carl Bernstein called it first. Days before bombshell reports that an FBI counterintelligence investigation into whether President Trump has acted as a Russian asset, Bernstein told a CNN panel that he believed one of the questions special counsel Robert Mueller was trying to answer was whether any obstruction by the president furthered the interests of the Russians. Now the reporter of Watergate fame is indicating that he knows where the Mueller investigation is going to end up, and it´s not looking good for Trump.

Eminent geneticist James Watson has had the last of his honorary titles stripped from him after doubling down on controversial statements about race and intelligence. The Nobel Prize-winning scientist, who with Francis Crick and Rosalind Franklin discovered the double-helix structure of DNA, has been embroiled in controversy for more than a decade. In 2007 he lost his job at Cold Spring Harbour Laboratory for making racist remarks, but retained three honorary titles there including chancellor emeritus. However, following a new documentary in which he said these views had not changed, and told interviewers genes were responsible for a difference

Megyn Kelly finalized her exit from NBC News on Friday night — after months of difficult negotiations over whether she could ever talk about the backstabbing behavior from network brass and staffers. Kelly finally resolved her exit three months after she was axed as host of the 9 a.m. hour of “Today,” landing her a $30 million payout to take her salary to the agreed amount in her contract — a total of $69 million. The former Fox News host lasted just 18 months at NBC News, but Page Six learned during the course of her negotiations

The extraordinary story published Friday night in The New York Times headlined “F.B.I. Opened Inquiry into Whether Trump was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia” tells us how deeply sick the Washington establishment has become. A group of bureaucrats--elected by no one--sat in a room and decided they would investigate the new president of the United States for possible treason. Let me repeat: treason. This is, after all, the implication of this investigation. This group of bureaucrats reports to no one in elected authority.

Some 30 Democratic lawmakers left the government shutdown behind Friday on a chartered flight to Puerto Rico for a winter retreat with 109 lobbyists and corporate executives during which they planned to see the hit Broadway show “Hamilton” and attend three parties including one with the show’s cast. Those attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC winter retreat in San Juan planned to meet with key officials to discuss the cleanup after Hurricane Maria at a roundtable Saturday. But the weekend is packed with free time for the members and their families on the trip.

Gillette is embracing the #MeToo movement in a new digital ad campaign aimed at men, the latest message from an advertiser attempting to change societal norms. The ad, dubbed “We Believe,” opens with audio of news about the current #MeToo movement, bullying and “toxic masculinity.” A narrator then goes on to dispute the notion that “boys will be boys,” asking, “Is this the best a man can get? Is it? We can’t hide from it. It has been going on far too long. We can’t laugh it off, making the same old excuses.”

WASHINGTON —So it has come to this: The president of the United States was asked over the weekend whether he is a Russian agent. And he refused to directly answer. The question, which came from a friendly interviewer, not one of the “fake media” journalists he disparages, was “the most insulting thing I’ve ever been asked,” he declared. But it is a question that has hung over his presidency now for two years. If the now 23-day government shutdown standoff between Mr. Trump and Congress has seemed ugly, it may eventually seem tame by comparison with what is to come. The
