I'm not sure about skimpy coverage -- it was covered on both local news stations I watched yesterday (one at 6, the other at 10) and by NBC Nightly News. I sure hope that the test pilot was correct when he said he might have accidentally hit the rudder, though -- that roll was NOT pretty!

...from political junk to praise Burt Rutan, Mike Melvill, and the SpaceShip One team and the first flight in their quest for the X-Prize. Though it got skimpy (in my opinion) media coverage, this is one of the most important events of our day.
Quiz: Can you remember who was President when Lindbergh made his famous Trans-Atlantic flight? Who was Vice President? Who they ran against to be elected? I suggest that in years to come SS1 will be known by all and Kerry and Bush will be obscure footnotes.
