This is just awful. What a huge blow to the private spaceflight industry.
Sadly, a "serious anomaly" caused the craft to fall from the sky, and crash into the Mojave Desert.
Virgin Galactic released a statement:

The former Los Angeles Clipper's drug dealer, who goes by the alias Mr. Fix It recently decided to speak out about the extent of the falling star's drug use.
The dealer says Lamar's drug of choice was definitely cocaine, and that he wasn't aware of him doing other drugs such as crack or OxyContin, which he has reportedly been using.
"He likes to party. He’s a pretty nice guy to be honest with you, but he’s becoming … his problem seems to be becoming a bigger problem."
His dealer mentioned a specific incident earlier this year in February in which Lamar purchased $16,000 worth of cocaine and smoked most of it right before a game against the New York Knicks.
Mr. Fix It claims he has known Lamar for a little over 3 years, and when he asked how much he had spent on drugs in that time, his response was jaw-dropping.
"Roughly, more than 50 grand… over the time I’ve known him."
If Mr. Fix It's claims are true, it's clear that Lamar's troubles are bigger than we ever could have imagined.
The basketballer was recently arrested for a DUI and is still reportedly resisting rehab.
Hopefully his family and friends are eventually able to get through to him and convince Lamar to get the help he needs.
