"head back and we're accelerating." dave mackay is virgin galactic's chief pilot he's been training inside this simulator hundreds of times -- waiting for a
"after rollout we expect in the next couple of months to be in flight test. and of course that's hugely significant." that's because virgin galactic has not had a vehicle since a tragic accident in 20-14 left its spaceship in pieces, and killed one test pilot.

"to kill a mockingbird" author harper lee has died at age 89. anderson cooper looks back at her remarkable life.
--reporter pkg-as follows-- nats - "you never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view." a life lesson delivered by the fictional alabama lawyer, atticus finch, in the 1962 film to kill a mockingbird. nats - "she kissed a black man." the movie addresses racial injustice of the 1930's through the eyes of finch's young daughter, scout. these characters were first brought to life by famed author, harper lee, in a novel that would become a classic for all generations. nelle harper lee was born on april 28th, 1926
lee's father was a lawyer and served as inspiration for her book's civil rights hero. following in her father's footsteps, lee studied law at the university of alabama and became editor of the school's humorous and literary magazine. but by age 23 - she'd abandoned law and moved to new york to become a writer. there, lee reunited with her childhood friend and fellow writer, truman capote, assisting him in the research that led to his famous novel, "in cold blood." their unique friendship played out on the big screen in the award- winning movie, "capote." nats - "you're the only one i know with the qualifications to be both a research assistant and a personal body guard." lee's first novel, to kill a mockingbird, was published in 1960 and received the pulitzer prize. in 2007, president george w. bush presented lee with the medal of freedom. "all of us are filled with admiration for a great american and a lovely lady named harper lee." but for most of her life, she stayed out of the spotlight. in one of the few interviews lee ever granted, she offered a glimpse into her thoughts. saying: "i want to do the best i can with the talent god gave me... all i want to be is the jane austen of south alabama." nats - one of the most widely anticipated books of... in 2015, the literary
the discovery of a second harper lee manuscript titled "go set a watchman" would be published. completed in 1957, watchman was actually written before to kill a mockingbird - and features scout and atticus some twenty years later. nats - "this is really the publishing event of the decade." nats - "whoo hoo!" that excitement lit up the small town where harper lee grew up and lived in her twilight years. "to have another book? we are charmed!" but many fans were disappointed in the portrayal of the characters they knew and loved. "a couple of the tweets really echoing the devastation of fans out there. the idea of atticus finch being racist is like spielberg doing a sequel in which et punches eliot in face and steals his lunch money!" "watchman" still became a best seller; the fastest selling book in harpercollins' publishing history. through all the fanfare, harper lee remained quiet - rarely seen or heard from. but. forever remembered for inspiring the world through her written
