SpaceShipOne Gets The X-Prize

from the congrats dept

Congratulations to the SpaceShipOne crew for winning the $10 million X-Prize, after completing a second successful flight into space this morning. The rocket plane apparently made it well above the necessary 328,000 foot level to claim the prize. Consider the privately funded space program doors officially open.

    SpaceShipOne DVD

    If you want to see what it was like to be there for all three of the historic flights of Burt Rutan's SpaceShipOne, check out the DVD, "Mojave Magic: A Turtle's Eye View of SpaceShipOne" at www.DesertTurtle.com. These guys did a great job of creating a real "you are there" experience. Even my kids love it!
