Space History

Not exactly the Apollo program, but a big piece of space history nonetheless: A bunch of amateur rocketeers actually succeeded in launching their craft on a suborbital flight (altitude 70 to 77 miles) earlier this week. It’s the first time a privately funded, nonprofessional group with no government ties or money has managed to put something in space. The team’s leader, Ky Michaelson, is a former movie stuntman who lives in the Minneapolis area.
