X-prize: One down, one to go!

SpaceshipOne made the first of two planned flights towards the X-prize. It was successful but a bit scarier than planned. Hopefully the can do something about that roll before Monday. http://www.cnn.com/2004/TECH/space/09/29/spaceshipone.attempt.cnn/index.html

Watching the video, I couldn't help but think of Cygnus X-1 by Rush. Spinning, turning, still ascending like a spiral sea unending. Or something to that effect. The pilot later admitted he put his foot on a control too early. Maybe they should not use pilots who also are members of AARP and take a Geritol everyday. haha!
