17 hours and counting...

till SpaceShipOne (the first private spaceflight in the history of mankind) launches into space...

"The public is invited to watch history made Monday when a company called Scaled Composites attempts to launch the first piloted commercial vehicle into space. Event planners expect a cosmic Woodstock. Motels in the area are mostly booked and plans are in place for an all-night party."

A salute to Burt Rutan, and hurrah for free-market solutions to space exploration!

I got up at 6:30am this morning and tried to see it launch, but the clouds were completely covering the sky so I went back to bed. But apparently, they did it. Congratulations, to Mike Melvill, the world's first civillian astronaut!
