I can't fathom this flight going as scheduled. So the question is...Will the 6-21 flight of SpaceShipOne be delayed or on time?Results (total votes = 1):Yes, it will be delayed by 1 week or more.&nbsp1 / 100.0%&nbsp Yes, but the delay will be 48 hours or less.&nbsp0 / 0.0%&nbspYes, but the launch will happen within 24 hrs.&nbsp0 / 0.0%&nbspNo, the flight will happen on time!&nbsp0 / 0.0%&nbspNo, they'll actually get excited and take off early!&nbsp0 / 0.0%&nbsp "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them"

I have a confession too. I think the flight will end in an explosion and death of the pilot too. Sorry, but there is a massive learning curve to space flight and this group hasn't paid their dues.I strongly support the mission.Chris "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them"

I can't believe nobody else cast a vote in this poll. Chris "The man who does not read good books has no advantage over the man who cannot read them"

Not only did it work...it went off w/ only 1 hitch that a backup system took care of. I'm stoked. Of course, 2 people is the next step and it's likely this group will win the X-prize...But where do we go from here? Just getting space tourism off the ground really isn't enough.
