Virgin Galactic president Mike Moses on what’s next for the company’s growing fleet

This last weekend featured the much-ballyhooed launch of Virgin Galactic’s first (nonpaying) passengers, with founder and CEO Richard Branson along for the ride. After the festivities, I had the chance to talk with the company’s president, Mike Moses, who seems to be familiar with every detail of the operation and the company’s plans for going from test to commercial flights. Unfortunately my recorder went on the fritz, but Moses was kind enough to hop on the phone later in the week to talk (aga...

America’s birthday was no picnic in the park

On July 4th, 1776 the Second Continental Congress took the radical step of declaring thirteen of King George III’s colonies independent of the mother country; from then on there was no going back. As Benjamin Franklin said, “We shall all hang together or we shall most certainly hang separately.” The story of American independence is so remarkable it still seems more fable than fact. Yet, while the actual history is complex, contradictory and often confusing, it still has the power to inspire and...

Superman Returns Remains a Spectacular Misfire 15 Years Later

I remember the night vividly: I was sitting behind a rotting old desk at the college gym I worked at, busily scanning membership passes and doing my best to make the time fly by. Normally, the job was rather mundane, consisting of scanning, greeting, scanning, greeting, scanning, and more greeting for eight hours straight, but at least I got a desk computer to help the time pass. Often I worked on homework when I wasn’t drawing, doodling, or wishing to holy hell the college students would stop ...
