Today's the Day!!!

It's the first day of summer, but it's also the day the first privately funded manned space flight takes place! To be more precise it will be a sub-orbital launch, just to prove it can be done. The ship will be flown to about 50km on another plane, The White Knight, and then fire up engines till 100km into the atmosphere, not quite reaching the speeds necessary for continuous orbit, but high enough to bring out thousands of people and excite me! (according to the press release, it's safer and cheaper than continuous orbit, but the view from up there is similar)

check it here: Space Ship One I'm watching it live on CP24!

and watch the news, cuz by now it may already be in the air!!

Also, this is totally cool: Spidey India!

Oh and have you seen what that moron wants to do to America now? How do I evacuate my friends from the U.S.? To Control a Nation
