Tears to my eyes.
20+ years of Nasa being mis-managed and we end up with a space vehicle we can't even use, and a space station we need to hitch a ride with the Russians to get to.
These guys take $20m to $40m ... THE SAME AMOUNT OF $$$ SOME DOT-COM'S SPENT ON THEIR LAUNCH PARTIES ... and touch the heavens.
It gives me hope for many things. Solar Power Satellites, a real exploration of the solar system, a permanent presense in space.
It's the Flying Cloud, The Model T, The DC3 ... it's a FREAKING REAL START ... not just "The Demo."
