One step closer...

...to space.

Veteran aircraft designer Burt Rutan's entry for the X Prize, the White Knight/SpaceShipOne combination is now flight testing.

You can find a flight test log and plenty of photos (the full size images are big!) on the Scaled Composites web site.

That's a nicelooking craft. Rutan's always thought outside the box: for example tailfirst aircraft, asymmetric planes. This could do the X-Prize and it doesn't look too frightening either.
