$200,000 buys you a Ticket to Ride in SPACE !

The SpaceShipOne Project, the "First Private Manned Space Program" was unveiled today, 24th January, 2008, by noted design wizard Burt Rutan and his company, Scaled Composites, Inc. British billionaire Sir Richard Branson hailed the "year of the spaceship" as he unveiled the designs of two crafts which could help take the first tourists into space. Work on SpaceShipTwo, and its mothership White Knight Two, is nearing completion and flight tests will begin later this year. Sir Richard said this "historic occasion" could help "to answer key questions about Earth's climate and the mysteries of the universe".

Wow, I did not think that this would happen in my lifetime...what else can man do?
