Submission + - SpaceShipTwo completes first manned glide flight (virgingalactic.com)

incognito84 writes: Good news for anyone interested in future space tourism ventures. From the news article: "10th October 2010, Mojave, CA. Virgin Galactic, the US company developing the world’s first commercial manned space flight system and tourism business, is delighted to announce the successful completion today of the first piloted free flight of SpaceShipTwo, named the VSS Enterprise. The spaceship was released from its mothership at an altitude of 45,000 ft
(13,700 metres)." I look forward to buying a ticket on one of these flights when they become affordable for run-of-the-mill dreamers.
