Eric Blackwell, 38, also died at scene while Todd Ivens, 33, died during surgery. Three other employees were critically injured. May was part of Scaled’s history-making SpaceShipOne team, which launched the first private manned rocket into space. He left after SpaceShipOne won the X Prize to work at another space-related company and had just returned to Scaled on Monday, his family said. Scaled founder Burt Rutan said the explosion happened as workers were testing the flow of nitrous oxide for SpaceShipTwo, a spaceline for suborbital flights. The test was considered routine and did not involve a rocket firing. “As you may imagine, the Scaled family is devastated by this event,” said a statement released Friday by the company. “As we grieve together, we are also beginning to gather up all of the information to determine what caused this accident. We are committed to learn all we can from this tragedy and move ahead.” The state division of Occupational Safety and Health also is investigating. Spokeswoman Kate McGuire said Cal-OSHA has up to six months to complete its investigations, but typically completes them between two weeks to two months. Scaled Composites has had no violations in the past, McGuire said. At least one other test had been conducted in support of SpaceShipTwo without incident. Several similar tests had been done for SpaceShipOne, the first privately funded, privately developed craft to reach space. “Even though we’ve done what is considered very, very dangerous work for 33 years, this is the first time we ever injured anybody during a test,” Rutan said during a news conference Thursday night. “We were doing a test we believed was completely safe, that’s why we don’t remove people from it like we do in a rocket test.” SpaceShipOne, financed by billionaire Paul G. Allen, made three suborbital flights in 2004 – two of them within a two-week period. That achievement earned the SpaceShipOne team the $10 million Ansari X Prize. Scaled Composites is building SpaceShipTwo for billionaire Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic. The spaceship, envisioned as the first of a fleet of five, will be used to take tourists on suborbital space flights. The spacecraft is expected to be able to have room for two pilots and up to six passengers. Northrop Grumman, which is in the process of acquiring full ownership of Scaled Composites, and the Personal Spaceflight Federation, an organization dedicated to space tourism, also issued statements. “Northrop Grumman extends our condolences to the people of Scaled Composites and share in their grief and sadness with the loss and injuries of their co-workers,” the Northrop Grumman statement said. Northrop Grumman, which owned 40 percent of Scaled Composites, reached an agreement early this month to take full ownership. The sale is expected to be completed in August. “Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the families and those injured or lost in today’s incident,” the statement from the Personal Spaceflight Federation said. “We will await the results of the investigation before further comment, but we have complete confidence that the causes of the incident will be found in due course.” firstname.lastname@example.org (661) 267-5743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

When he got older, he rigged them on bicycles and canoes to make them zip. “He was outgoing. I wouldn’t call him a geek type of person,” recalled older brother Gary May. Charles May, 45, was killed about 2:30 p.m. Thursday during a routine test of a propellent flow system for a new space tourism vehicle at a Mojave Desert airport site used by Scaled Composites LLC.
Two goals in eight first-half minutes from Wolfsburg were enough for the Bundesliga strugglers to stun Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals.The 10-time winners of the competition face an uphill task just to progress to the last four this year after losing 2-0 in Germany in the first leg.Ricardo Rodriguez netted a penalty, before Maximilian Arnold doubled the advantage just moments later, becoming the first players to score past Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas in this year’s competition.Four days on from a win at the Nou Camp with 10 men, Zinedine Zidane’s side looked shaky at the back and have it all to do in the return fixture in the Spanish capital next Tuesday.70 seconds in it appeared as if Madrid would not be getting their own way, when Cristiano Ronaldo was flagged for a marginal offside call when he collected Karim Benzema’s pass and turned home.Moments later Gareth Bale was then denied what appeared a clear penalty after Luiz Gustavo clattered into his leg inside the area, although Benzema could have no complaints at not grabbing the opener moments later when he shot straight at Diego Benaglio in the Wolfsburg goal.Wolfsburg, who currently sit eighth in the Bundesliga, were a threat on the counter, though, and Andre Schurrle was the catalyst for the opening goal – the first Navas has conceded in 738 minutes in the Champions League.The winger appeared to kick his own foot as he swung his leg past Casemiro in the Madrid penalty area, but the referee saw enough contact to award the host a spot-kick, which Rodriguez converted.Seven minutes later it was 2-0, Julian Draxler finding Henrique in space and from his cross Arnold stole a march on Sergio Ramos and finished first-time past Navas.Zidane’s side pushed for an away goal as soon as they went two behind, Benzema heading wide and Toni Kroos drawing Benaglio into a save.Bale planted a 25-yard free-kick over his crossbar of the stroke of half-time, and Ronaldo missed the target with two attempts from Bale crosses in the second period.However, Schurrle almost netted a third for the Germans, but he fired over after beating Marcelo, who cut a frustrated figure with an act of petulance.The Brazilian kicked out at Arnold before comically falling to the ground after placing his head in the goalscorer’s chest, with only the victim and Bale booked in the subsequent skirmish. Ronaldo was thwarted again by Benaglio after substitute Isco had threaded a pass through with the outside of his boot, while Navas pushed away from Max Kruse at the other end to ensure the task facing Real in the second leg did not become even more difficult.

MANCHESTER, England – Prime Minister Tony Blair, in his final address to his governing Labour Party, said Tuesday that being the United States’ strongest ally can be difficult but it is crucial to stay close to Washington in the fight against terrorism. The man who spoke on stage in Manchester looked far different from the fresh-faced 41-year-old who took over the party in 1994. Now his hair is shot with gray, and the lines on his face are more pronounced – reflecting a turbulent 12 years in which British troops have been sent into battle in Iraq and Afghanistan, and there have been suicide terror attacks on British soil. “Yes, it’s hard sometimes to be America’s strongest ally,” he said. “At the moment, I know people only see the price of these alliances. Give them up and the cost in terms of power, weight and influence for Britain would be infinitely greater. Distance this country, and you may find it’s a long way back.” This speech, his last to the Labour Party faithful as leader, was a chance for Blair to secure his legacy, to remind his detractors of his accomplishments and to urge his party to stay on course when he leaves office sometime in the next year.

A journalist quoted Blair’s wife Cherie as responding: “Well, that’s a lie” – a purported remark that gained widespread attention in Tuesday’s papers. Cherie Blair denied making the comment, but the incident was another bit of bad luck for Brown – a man who is much admired for his policy acumen but now seems fated to struggle to replace Blair and may ultimately even watch the post slip through his fingers. As leader, Blair forced the traditionally left-leaning party into the center and reached out to moderate, middle-class voters. His emphasis on such issues as health care, fiscal discipline and crime appealed to millions, and when Britain voted in 1997, Labour swept into government for the first time in 18 years. He was Britain’s youngest prime minister since 1812, and his election dovetailed with the era of “cool Britannia.”
He said about 75 students at Whittier College enroll in study abroad programs each year. Roughly 10 percent are Latino. Financial aid at the private college helps students afford to study abroad, McBride added. Beginning next spring, Global Learning Semesters’ tuition scholarships will be available to students attending HACU member institutions, which includes Whittier College. Studying abroad can cost up to $8,000 per semester, plus additional travel and personal expenses, said Alvaro Romo, associate vice president for programs, services and international affairs for HACU. “Even when Latino students already have student aid, they often do not have the additional resources to pay for their travel and their stay at another country,” Romo said. “This makes it more feasible for them to be able to participate in study abroad programs.” email@example.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3024 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Officials at Global Learning Semesters Inc., an organization that promotes study abroad programs, say Latino students enroll in international study programs at about half the rate of all college students. The organization has partnered with the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities to secure $8 million in scholarships to help Latino students take part in international study programs. Officials with Global Learning Semesters hope their multimillion-dollar scholarship fund – to be distributed over 10 years – will increase Latinos’ numbers in study abroad programs nationwide.

Officials point the finger at several factors – affordability, limited awareness of programs and cultural issues. According to the Institute of International Education, just 5.4 percent of the nearly 175,000 U.S. college students who study abroad are Latino. “I’m not surprised that that’s the case, but it’s not true here,” said Mike McBride, former director of foreign studies at Whittier College.
