Klingon special tricks department the top suspects

Mojave Desert, California - Bankrolled by a bunch of Wall Street hedge fund Trekkies Richard Branson's SpaceShipTwo exploded during a test fright over the Mojave Desert this morning.

The $100m craft blew up unexpectedly just daze after NASA's International Space Station-bound Antares rocket fried on take-off, a target of complex astrological vibes.

And lousy galactic karma.

Today's catastrophe means yet another setback for daft Klingon-stalking wannabe Branson who has pocketed an estimated $250,000 from more than 600 people in advanced box orifice takings for his craft's inaugural flight.

Accident investigators may now decide if the futuristic craft is actually insurable with premiums soaring to more than $200m per flight - something that would easily clean out the entire operation's stockholder funds.
