I wanted to trumpet the news about SpaceShip1, but by the time I had time to do an entry for it here the whole world already knew about it. So all I can really do is sing the praises about a space program that can be done for minimum money, and without the Government (ANYBODIE’S government, of whatever flavor) having a say in how, when, and why it all gets done!
For the migration into space to work to humanity’s advantage, it has to be done by people, not paramilitary organizations. SpaceShip1 is the only attempt that actually succeeded in breaching the atmosphere so far, in anything large enough to carry a human. There is hope for us yet; with hard work, luck, and the right attitude we will get there!
