Second star to the right…

A company called Scaled Composites is going to launch, if successful, what would be the first privately-developed manned craft into space on June 21. It’s been solely sponsored by Paul Allen (ex-Microsoft). Although this flight will be done solo, the ship fits three people which makes it eligible to run for the Ansari X-Prize, a US$10m prize to the first team that does what Scaled Composites is doing, but carries three people and performs two successful launches within two weeks with the same ship.
