Space flight

I just ran across this quote of Burt Rutan from Space Flight Now:

"Quite frankly, I think the big guys, the Boeings, the Lockheeds, the nay-say people at Houston, they probably ... think we're a bunch of home builders who put a rocket in a Long Easy," he said, referring to one of his recreational aircraft designs. "But if they ... got a look at how this flight was run and how we developed the capabilities of this ship and showed its safety, I think they're looking at each other now and saying, 'We're screwed.'"

Re: Space flight

Moderators, you want to move this to the off-topic related thread which I missed when I posted this?

Re: Space flight

Done, but there are already threads about this up.

I loved the quote though!
