Virgin Galactic scrubbed the SpaceShipTwo glide flight scheduled for today. The WhiteKnightTwo mother ship carried the spacecraft aloft, but surface winds at the Mojave Air and Space Port were too high to allow for a safe landing by SpaceShipTwo. Both vehicles are back on the ground now. A new date for the flight test has not been announced yet.
