I've been interested in the private space sector for quite some time, though it seems like NASA has a veritable stronghold on anything be launched
here in the United States.
I think it's quite a remarkable occurance; the scientists and companies who worked on this launching are impressive. I think, as well, that it
suddenly "mortal-fies" rocketry: It makes it something perceptably 'human,' rather than just the work of the demigogue-esque NASA and
I found this article along the similar lines
of this post, as well.
Also - while I couldn't find it via a quick search on Google, I remember hearing on coast to coast AM (art bell, in other words) of a man who was
building his own rocket which he, himself, was going to fly. I'm not sure if anyone else has any info on it, but it seemed neat.
