I think the Spaceship One guys are awesome. The Space Shuttle program is shutting down soon; people will want to put their stuff up there whether it's sent by Nasa or not. Go, you magnificent entreprenuerial bastards! Take some hot chicks up there too! Million-mile-high club!

Sorry Asholes, but you are wrong. That is Spaceship One's real technological method of take-off. It is so, so Heath Robinson!

The whole technological concept of Spaceship One is ridiculously old fashioned.

Private and commercial space flight is such an amazing concept. Anything to get us more into space. I've always thought every person should see the earth from space for perspective.

SpaceShipOne is a spaceplane that completed the first privately funded human spaceflight on June 21, 2004. It was developed by Scaled Composites. SpaceShipOne was an experimental air-launched suborbital spaceplane that used a hybrid rocket motor. The design featured a unique "feathering" reentry system where the rear half of the wing and the twin tail booms folded upward along a hinge running the length of the wing; this increased drag while remaining stable. The achievements of SpaceShipOne are more comparable to the X-15 than orbiting spacecraft like the Space Shuttle. Accelerating a spacecraft to orbital speed requires more than 60 times as much energy as lifting it to 100 km.
