Spaceship One

Well that's that. The X-Prize is officially won. If you didn't get to watch this live, you really missed a treat. Totally not like anything NASA has ever done. It was obvious that no one really knew what to expect.

When the little ship dropped off and fire her rocket, commentators were genuinely stunned. I don't think anyone expected it to be as athletic as it clearly is. She shot out well... like a rocketship is supposed to.

I feel like I just watched sci-fi. Truely cool.

In the next 5 years, we're going to learn how NASA has moved from being an exploration agency, to a risk-avoidance agency.

Private Enterprize baby!
