SpaceShipOne won the X Prize!

That's pretty neat!
One of the companies is quoted saying that it will be ~$200,000 for a ticket to space. That doesn't seem that expensive to me (way out of my price range but not that bad)....

Yeah, that would be 1 percent of the price paid by Dennis Tito and Mark Shuttleworth (now there's a good name for a space tourist) to go to the ISS. But that's actually going into orbit whereas the 200K would presumably just be a few minutes of weightlessness at the edge of space? Don't know which is the better deal, but I suspect the space shuttle ride at Universal Studios would still be the best value. :)
