Submission + - SpaceShip Two, XCOR Lynx Prepare for Powered Flights

RocketAcademy writes: "Virgin Galactic's SpaceShip Two is in the final stages of preparation for powered flight.

The suborbital spacecraft, built by Scaled Composites, has successfully completed airspeed, angle-of-attack, center-of-gravity, and structural tests during unpowered glide flights. It is now on track for powered glide flights by the end of this year.

Meanwhile, in the hangar next door, XCOR Aerospace continues to work on the Lynx spacecraft, expected to begin powered flight tests early next year. Some exclusive photos provide a sneak peak at things to come."
