Ansari X-Prize Won, Space Travel To Start

News Media around the world, including BBC and CNN, had lead stories about SpaceShipOne's second flight into space this week -- making the team the winner of the $10 million Ansari X-Prize. Even Google's Logo today features SpaceShipOne making contact with aliens.

Richard Branson, chairman of Virgin Atlantic Airways (and the Virgin Group) has recently set up Virgin Galactic, a company promising flights into space (aboard SpaceShipOne) for $200,000 by the end of the decade!

It is a historic day, indeed.
