SpaceShipOne to the edge of the atmosphere and back

So, SpaceShipOne has made it to the 100km mark and back. Story from the BBC here and here. This is the distance that the Ansari X-Prize requires for it to be considered a flight into space.

All of this has been non-government-funded. Considering the political climate and the use/abuse of government agencies, this even a better thing than it normally would be.

[.Edit.] I'm realizing thta this will be just one of many posts on this topic and such is going to fill folks' friends page. To which I say darn. Especially things like this, I want to mark it in my journal.
