Up until yesterday I had been waiting for SpaceShipOne to blast into space for so long. I really must say, the past year has been amazing for me. We've found water on Mars (this is a lot bigger a find than you'd think), and we as humans have taken our first step into the Space Age Era. Those are the things I'll look back on when I'm older and I'll be proud to say I was around to witness it. Anybody catch Burt Rutan and Mike Melvill on Leno last night? I dunno about anyone else, but that whole interview was the kind that gave me chills (the oddly good kind) and really gave me something amazing to look forward to. Now I know what people felt back in the 60's when Yuri Gagarin orbitted the Earth and man landed on the moon. And to think, Scaled Composites isnt even the only team competing for the X-Prize! There are 27 or so other teams all developing and working for the same thing as Rutans co.!!! But its definitely private companies and kids today who have an interest in doing this that'll get us there. For far too long have people relied on NASA to do everything. Its amazing to see people just working together to conquer such an amazing thing.

Very cool accomplishment. Perhaps this event will have the same implications on travel that the Wright Brothers had.
