Crashed spaceship would have flown from Sweden
The private spaceship that crashed in the American Mojave Desert would have used the Swedish spaceport in Kiruna, as part of planned space tourism.
One pilot was killed and another seriously injured when Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo crashed during a test flight on Friday.
The CEO of Spaceport Sweden says this is a setback, but there are no plans to cancel the whole project.
Space flights from Sweden’s arctic city of Kiruna were supposed to start in 2016.
