The Frontier is OPEN!

Hooray for SpaceShipOne ! It just landed successfully.

The Final Frontier is Finally Open! They have won the X-Prize of $10 million and taken the space flight to the next level. As a space nut, and former NASA employee, this is what I dreamed of as a kid watching Apollo 11. And, it wasn't the government who did it....

As Peter Diamandis (one of the men behind the X-Prize) said, "Space Flight is part of YOUR future now."

The name is Diamantis....a good Greek.

And yes...HOORAY! NASA just got a swift kick into irrelevancy. They rescinded their promise to send us to the New Frontier 40 years ago.....and now, who needs them?

If you look at the NASA bureaucrats now....couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of guys.....
