October 4th. A day that will forever live in History

Happy Anniversary of a revolutionary event! “On October 4, 2004, the Ansari XPRIZE was won by Mojave Aerospace Ventures, successfully completing the contest in their spacecraft SpaceShipOne.”

Here’s a pic of Burt Rutan, Anne Hudson and SSI President Gary Hudson taken last week at Burt’s place in Idaho. What a view they gave us (and I don’t just mean in this picture). THANKS BURT!

Oh, and thanks for banging the drop test model against the wall of the Mojave control tower SSI office as seen in the XPrize documentary Black Sky. Over and over again. SSI is always there to be a helpful sounding board 😉
