Flying

(Actually from last night during the flight, but then I got home…) As part of my new position for CampusEAI I’ve had a fairly aggressive travel schedule over the past few weeks (the cost of not relocating). It has however forced me to become much more closely acquainted with the airlines (and Continental in particular) ...

It was clear from his answers that Mr. Jobs ...

SpaceShipOne Breaks Sound Barrier

Space.com reports that SpaceShipOne has managed it’s first successful powered test flight. On the 100th anniversary of the Wright Brothers flight, it seems to have marked the first successful supersonic manned flight by a non-governmentally sponsored effort.
