"The VSS Enterprise was a real joy to fly, especially when one considers the fact that the vehicle has been designed not only to be a Mach 3.5 spaceship capable of going into space but also one of the worlds highest altitude gliders."
“This was one of the most exciting days in the whole history of Virgin. For the first time since we seriously began the project in 2004, I watched the world’s first manned commercial spaceship landing on the runway at Mojave Air and Space Port and it was a great moment. Now, the sky is no longer the limit and we will begin the process of pushing beyond to the final frontier of space itself over the next year.”
I am really optimistic for this.
Although, I still believe that we should have an ongoing Shuttle program. Or a next Gen version of it on a national scale! I would love to see a future American Shuttle be the first to land on Mars!
Then again I am one of those minorities of Americans who grew up with the Apollo program as our greatest achievement, and not Woodstock like all those progressives!
I fully support all that these guys are doing on a privately funded project. They're accomplishing a lot.
And Tom,.......Woodstock AND Apollo were both significant events in my life. It was a good time to be growing up.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
