SS1 (Space Ship 1
) is set to launch in a few minutes.
Its an experimental vehicle designed to take civilians into space, bring them back, and be ready to launch again within one or two weeks. Needless to say, it was built in order to claim the "X-Prize" ($10 Mil for completing what's mentioned above).
Assuming its succesful, what do you think of this? In my opinion, this starts the true space-age, when independant groups sponsored by corporations begin building spacecraft.
Mantrid, you truly scare me sometimes.
