    SpaceShipOne claims the Ansari X-Prize

    I know its not really cert related, and god i'm late (this is news from the 4th)

    But on Monday at 7:45 (MST or PST i assume), White Night launched with SpaceShipOne aboard, a clean non eventful flight commenced, and at 7:51 a height of 328'000ft was attained (enough to beat the record set by the X-15 in 1963

    SpaceShipOne was piloted this flight by Brian Binnie, who landed the craft safely about 20 minutes after takeoff.

    I would like to congratulate all those who took part in the X Prize, who may just of changed human space exploration forever. May the future hold bright things for mans journey into the new frontier.

    Various articles related to this are floating around the net
