Space, the Final Frontier

congratulations to everyone associated with the design of SpaceShipOne, which today became the first privately developed manned vessel to reach outer space. Future test missions will include one to return Michael Jackson to his homeworld of Freakozoid in the Weirdo Galaxy.

Though today's launch did not actually include an orbit of Earth, the accomplishment is nonetheless viewed by many as crucial to truly making space travel a viable commercial enterprise, and opening it up to the common man. However, in what may be an ominous sign, Al Qaeda has already made inquiries about training people to steer spacecraft without actually learning how to blastoff.
