SpaceShip2 has been evolving

Aviation Week discussed the evolution of the strakes on the inboard of the SS2 vertical tails.  Not a huge bit of news, but I am always confused about what to call those things (mainly when describing the winged rockets that I've built*).  SS2 started with one small strake, they added a second and evidently it now sports a 'mega strake'

*So, this post is mostly a reminder to myself.
