The aviation pioneer behind SpaceShipOne, Burt Rutan, has said he aims to fill the passenger seat during the craft's second X-Prize flight.
I find the X prize very interesting, from the McDonald Douglas X plane multi reuse craft that went up in flames on its second flight while on decent
when its landing gear failed several years ago, to the private venture by Rutan. And that the X Prize is bases in St. Louis Missouri, my hometown.
Its almost like when Lindburg flew across the Atlantic.
