FILE - This undated file photo, first released in 2008 by Virgin Galactic, shows SpaceShipTwo's construction inside the Scaled Composites plant at the Mojave Airport in Mojave, Calif.  The head of the space tourism company that suffered a tragic setback when its experimental rocket ship broke apart over the California desert says test flights could resume as early as next summer. Virgin Galactic CEO George Whitesides told The Associated Press on Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014 that work is underway at the company's Mojave shop to finish a second spacecraft. It will replace the first SpaceShipTwo, which was destroyed last week when it disintegrated during a test flight, killing one pilot and seriously injuring another.(AP Photo/Virgin Galactic, File)  NO SLALES
