Virgin Galactic Tragedy

Written by Epi Ludvik

15064101403_72680fa4d2_zYesterday was a tragic day for those of us excited about the new frontiers in space travel when the Virgin Galactic lost one of its pilots in a test space travel flight in the Mojave desert.

My sincere condolences go out to the family and colleagues of the fallen pilot who dared to push the boundaries of human ingenuity –helping to get the human race closer to the unthinkable. Virgin Galactic is well on its way to make commercial space travel a reality and I firmly believe this tragic loss will only make intentions stronger and resolve firmer.

We are fortunate to witness an era where norm is challenged and old thinking is being disrupted. Brilliant minds like those on the teams of Virgin Galactic, Scaled Composites and Mojave Spaceport are dreaming what we assumed was impossible and turning those dreams into reality. 

Richard Branson said of his ambitious plan for space travel,

“Unless you dream, you’re not going to achieve anything.”

Dream on Richard.
