Scaled Composits Gets OK for Spaceflight
A day late on this one but worth noting. The US Federal Aviation Authority has given Burt Rutan's Scaled Composits a green light for a sub-orbital launch of their privately funded spacecraft SpaceShipOne, BBC NEWS reports. Rutan's company is favored to win the $10 million X-prize, for the first privately funded group to reach space twice within two weeks.
