The National Transportation Safety Board has begun an investigation into Friday's crash of Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo.
NTSB acting chairman Christopher Hart said the board will spend four to seven days on the scene of the crash, and more time off-scene, gathering factual data. Phase two will be internal analysis of its findings.
CHRISTOPHER HART VIA BBC: “Time elapsed in the process will be probably about 12 months total.”
