People are making history all the time. Amazing, wonderful things are happening beneath the surface, things that will change the world forever.
Like right now.
The first private flight to leave Earth is in the air as we speak. SpaceShipOne is the result of countless millions of dollars, and years of research spearheaded by Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft. He started his own space program. And it’s paying off.
As I type this, SpaceShipOne is travelling towards a height of 100 kilometers away from Earth — officially out of our atmosphere, which will make pilot Mike Melvill the first man to fly out of earth’s atmosphere in a private spaceship.
Take note. These men (both male and female) are about to change the way we look at space, and what we can do with it. They are opening the door for everything science fiction has been promising us for the last hundred years.
(Who would have thought we would owe it all to Microsoft?)
