Rocket Man Blues...

Just watched The History Channel's Rocket Man. It chronicles the Canadian Arrow team's attempt at winning the X-Prize and beating Burt Rutan at kick starting a space tourism industry.

My favourite part was where they had astronauts trainning in a cardboard mock-up of their V-2 rocket capsule... Can you say "Rocket Barnstorming?"

I'm left with the impression after having seen that documentary about just how amazing it would have been if the Canadian Arrow team would have won. It would have really been the little guy underdog coming out of nowhere for a win...

Also I have to mention the part where the head honcho is having problems with his mortage was telling... He has one forgiving wife I'll say that much.
