So Spaced Out

Although we may not realize it now, the date of June 21st, 2004 may very well go down in history much like December 17th, 1903. Today pilot Mike Melvill flew the world's first privately-owned spacecraft into, well, space. To say this is huge is an understatement; it's going to open the final frontier in way I can't even begin to imagine.

To accompany this historical achievement, Wired.com had a nifty little article on colonizing Mars.
