And beyond

ss1.jpgIt would be hard to miss this news, but Scaled Composites has officially announced the existence of SpaceShipOne, which has quickly become a front runner for the X-prize.

I am a big fan of Burt Rutan. When I first took flying lessons, years ago, my aim was to eventually build and fly one of his Long-EZs. Many years later, the ideal has changed to a Boomerang (and lasik along the way :), but the designer has not. Rutan has a history of succeeding where he shouldn’t, and I wouldn’t bet against him.
