X-trordinary!

Congratulations to Burt Ratan and all the folks at Scaled Composites for winning the X-Prize! This is hardly news, as anyone who was alive a breathing today saw coverage of the event on TV. But this blogger is one of the millions of 70's kids that thought that we might just be alive long enough to see the days of "one ticket to outer space, please". Is it possible that in the next 20 years, a moon visit will be as safe as an airplane ride is today -- and almost as affordable?

Random Sample From NPR: Very good, informative piece on missile defense systems. Heavy on the technology talk, light on the politics. NPR with a nice spit-shine. Bias: none.
