Virgin's pioneering tourist-carrying spacecraft crashed on a test flight in California, killing a pilot and scattering debris across the desert -- and raising questions about the program's future.

The incident is the second disaster involving a US spacecraft this week, after an unmanned Orbital Sciences rocket carrying supplies to the International Space Station exploded after launch on Tuesday. It is also a huge blow to British tycoon Branson's long-held dream of offering the first passenger space flights, which have been snapped up by Leonardo DiCaprio and other celebrities.
