Xeni Jardin on SpaceShipOne

Science and techno-uber-geek Xeni Jardin writes about the SpaceShipOne launch in today's BoingBoing. ss1photo.jpg She provides some excellent links including a full size version of the one above. SpaceShipOne is being towed back after landing. Those three mugs sitting on the tailgate of the truck are Paul Allen, Burt Rutan and Sir Richard Branson. The pilot is standing on top of the SpaceShip as it is being towed waving an American flag. Very cool pic! She also links to the West Mojave Aviation Archaeology: bq. What you are about to see is the work of a dedicated group of aviation historians. It is our intention to record and preserve the histories of some of the most amazing aircraft and people ever to grace the California skies. The Right Stuff Posted by DaveH at October 4, 2004 7:18 PM
