Wow, I can't believe it was 5 years ago the SpaceShip One took out the XPRIZE cup for Commercial Spaceflight - Burt Rutan's mob certainly paved the
way for this emerging industry.
Read here www.xprize.org...
and little bit more of the man who started the initiative
Peter and team are the true pioneers I think.
I remember emailing Peter a few years before SS1 flew, just congratulating him for his efforts thus far, his replied in kind - which I thought was
really nice and humble of him.
Smal steps I guess, but still very exciting given the new initiatives now out there - offered in other XPRIZE's.
