SpaceShipTwo crashed Friday in the south of California. It exploded during the flight over the desert of Mojave shortly after the shuttle separated from the jet-powered aircraft White Knight 2 and turned on its engine. The investigation of the tragedy is expected to take from several weeks to several months.
Some experts assume that the accident could have occurred due to fuel explosion. Reportedly, Virgin Galactic and Scaled Composites, a Northrop Grumman subsidiary, decided to use a new type of fuel.
