We welcomed to Hotel Mars Doug Messier to discuss the latest news and developments with Virgin Galactic.  Doug talked about their engine issues their replacement with a nylon fuel motor.  He also talked about possibly reaching 50 miles rather than 62 miles.  John asked Doug about the upcoming science flights and passenger flights.  Doug commented about Branson and his sons going aboard SpaceShipTwo after the Virgin CEO flies first.  John seemed skeptical about Virgin throughout the discussion.   Doug also talked about the investment company from Abu Dhabi involved in Virgin to the tune of $390 million.
