I watched the Discovery Channel special chronicling Burt Rutan's attempt to make private private spaceflight, a reality - I cried! Here's the latest from xprize.org - Burt Rutan's Mojave Aerospace Ventures Team successfully reached an altitude of 337,500 feet with Mike Melvill (the pilot) onboard plus ballast (approx. 180 Kg). This flight was deemed by the Judges as a successful first flight for the $10 million Ansari X PRIZE.
