SpaceShipOne launches June 21

A quickie: The SpaceShipOne folks have announced a “historic launch on June 21″: the ship will reach 100 km, generally regarded as the “edge of space”. Apparently this is the first space launch that can be viewed up close by the public, since the rocket itself doesn’t fire until the carrier plane is aloft.

  1. Wahoo and yeehaw! How yay yay exciting is that? It would be so amazing to be there on the 21st, watching this plane take off with its technology-altering cargo. Sigh. Welcome to the 21st century. :)
