    Not always. Anyway, the motivations of people onboard is a rather large tangent here.

    The original topic is a plane crashed what now? Well, it was an experimental plane, doing something very risky, that's not unexpected outcome given the level of experimentation going on. A test pilot died as a pioneer in the field. Due respect will be given to him and his contribution and an investigation will be performed to ensure the same error doesn't happen again. But this won't derail the project or human desire to achieve commercial space travel.

    Virgin is a brand name. And is named after the Virgin Mary, as is the singer Madonna. And interestingly the Statue of Liberty mocks the Virgin Mary.

    Things will move on.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
