07/27/2004 Archived Entry: "SpaceShipOne will go for the Ansari X Prize in September!"

WHOOOOHOOOOO!!!!!!! SpaceShipOne will go for the Ansari X Prize on September 29. After the difficulties in last month's flight, there was some doubt about when the ship would launch again. Since the X Prize funding is currently scheduled to be withdrawn if no one wins it this year, that could have been a Very Bad Thing. But it looks as if the first of the two required flights is a GO! YeeeHaw!!!!

Here's the Wikipedia entry on the Ansari X Prize.

(You see, Jac. I reprinted your SpaceShipOne story earlier today ... and news happened. Musta been magic.)
