Space flight tomorrow morning

SpaceShipOne (crappy name) will have a test flight into space tomorrow morning at 9:30 Eastern time. It's the current leader in the Ansari X PRIZE: a $10 million challenge to have a private company build and launch a spaceship carrying three people to an altitude of 100 kilometers and repeat the journey two weeks later.
