A New Hope for Space

Hats off to the Tier One Project, the world's first privately funded manned space program, which includes SpaceShipOne and carrier aircraft White Knight.

A new era is born.

Quote of the day:

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of ...
And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.
