What Is This?

Hey Richard Dreyfuss, better hurry up to the Mojave Desert, because tonight the aliens are coming. Seriously:

I just saw SpaceShipTwo. It's very large and shiny. It's really impressive mounted to the mothership, makes Eve look right.

What you are seeing here is the rehearsal for the presentation of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo, the first space airliner in history. It will happen tonight, so stay tuned for images of this new spectacular aircraft, hopefully the beginning of a long series yet to come.

UPDATE:

Watch the photos of SpaceShipTwo here.

Can some moderator do something about this "weitengrong527" spammer? I know he/she/it's been banned, but the starred among us can still see the pink-highlighted bullshit. IN EVERY POST.

Edit: don't mean to imply you aren't working on it - it's just that this is the first time I've noticed such a major spambot hitting these comments.
