Well, he's gliding back now, but that didn't look like a very safe - or comfortable - flight.
For those that didn't see it, the SS1 craft began rapidly spinning about the roll axis about 1/2 way through the burn, and it looked like it was severely out of control.

I watched the webcast during history class. It sure was awesome to see.

The spin was unreal. I had a huge lump in my throat just before engine shutdown. The thing the bothers me, was it didn't seem like it was a "clean roll" either. For a minute, It looked like it was going enter into a snap roll set. That wouldn't have been good.
