I DIDN'T SEE IT LIVE, DARN IT

Unfortunately I was in a business meeting, so I didn't get to see Rutan & Co. punch another hole in the sky.

At another place and time, the world would have stopped to see this. Today, it's barely covered by the media.

But you can be assured there are those who need to ask the question why a private team with under $20 million in funding (probably the cost of engineering the "waste recycling system" on the Space Shuttle) was able to put a piloted rocket into space twice. I suspect there are those in NASA who aren't particularly happy -- maybe we should fire them and hire Rutan??
