Just a reminder that SpaceShipOne lifts off from Mohave Spaceport at 10 a.m. EST this morning. It hasn’t been decided if the craziest senior citizen in history, Mike Melvill, will pilot this time. (However, he’s done the last two, so I really can’t imagine them putting someone with no experience in the cockpit on this flight.)
If they make it to space and back down safely, they’ll win the $10 million X-Prize. I imagine we’ll know no later than 11:30 EST.
