These scenes may look like computer-generated spaceship shots for a summer sci-fi movie, but they're totally real photos taken during Friday's test flight of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo rocket plane.
Cameras were mounted on the exterior of SpaceShipTwo as well as its carrier airplane, WhiteKnightTwo, to monitor the rocket engine's performance. And yes, to get some way-cool video, too. Check out the photos taken while SpaceShipTwo zoomed over California's Mojave Desert.
