SpaceShipOne makes it to Space

June 21, 2004

SpaceShipOne makes it to space today making it the first private manned spaceflight in history. I’ve been following this exciting story for a while now and this is great news. This is part of the race to win the XPrize, which is $10 million prize for a team the builds and launches a spaceship, able to carry 3 people to 100 kilometers, returns safely to Earth, and then repeats the launch with the same ship within 2 weeks. The goal of the XPrize effort is to jumpstart the space tourism industry. Can’t wait to see more details of this.
