Re: SpaceShipOne Does it Again...
I watched it and it just blew my mind thinking about the implications of this flight. Add to that the fact that I was able to watch it live, via the internet, with live video from Spaceship One no less. I think I have a better understanding of how people felt in '69 w/the moon landings.
Seeing that thing spin out of control though was nuts - I was so nervous. I guess they cut the engines about 10 seconds sooner then they planned on doing because of the rolling. We think racers have a pair, but the 64 yr old pilot of this craft is in a whole different class.
Did you hear the speech afterwards? They were calling for 50 flights a day, F1 racing in space! (And for the same cost!!) Don't underestimate this accomplishment!!! Western civilization has entered a new chapter.
I'm not lost but I don't know where I am.
