Spaceship One Test Flight

Hurray!!! Bert Rutan's Spaceship One successfully took off, went 100 km into the atmosphere, achieved zero gravity, and landed back in the Mojave Desert, today!

Private, civilian space flight!--For about 1/25 the cost of a Space Shuttle mission!

The program was funded by Paul Allen, who I think is a co-founder of Microsoft.

*Waiting to see what Bill thinks of this!*
