SpaceShipOne event recollections
Matt Haughey, June 23rd, 2004
Early this week, SpaceShipOne became the first manned private flight into space. The event was covered by industry news organizations as well as the general media, but personally, I find this first-person account and these sets of photos and movies of the launch more compelling than the general news coverage so far.
