Virgin Galactic spacecraft crash kills one
At least one person is dead and another injured after Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo space tourism craft crashed in a California desert, the California Highway Patrol has said.
The craft was flying a manned test when it experienced what the company described as "a serious anomaly".
SpaceShipTwo is carried aloft by a jet, then launched into sub-orbit.
