Privately-funded SpaceshipOne rolled its way into space today. If the feat can be repeated in two weeks, it will take the Ansari X prize.

I spent about half an hour “working” with the webcast on one of my monitors :) Awesome achievement and great to watch, more than a couple of us got a little worried when SpaceshipOne started rapidly spinning near the top but Melville kept at it and got the 100 km. Make sure to watch here next time it comes up, don’t worry about bandwidth, it’s already withstood a /. effect :)
