Shivering on the 49th Parallel
Monday, June 21, 2004

Scaled Composites successfully launched and landed SpaceShipOne into suborbit this morning (62 miles or 100km up) enough to be weightless, enough to see the curvature of the earth, and enough for Mike Melvill to become an astronaut. Reuters had a video report of it up a few mins ago. Some people have said that the link didnt work for them. It worked for me, and gave me goosebumps. give it a whirl, maybe it will work for yuo, maybe it won't. Check out Space.com for more details.
