This is cool, from

MOJAVE, Calif. – XCOR’s EZ-Rocket flew into the history books Saturday. The craft made a record-setting point-to-point flight, departing here from the Mojave California Spaceport, gliding to a touchdown at a neighboring airport in California City.

And it was piloted by Dick Rutan, Burt’s brother, who flew Voyager around the globe nonstop without refueling a few years back.

It’s cool to see the continuing advancement of the technology which will make space travel more common and cheaper. It’s also cool to see the Mojave Airport referenced again as what it has become since SpaceShipOne: a spaceport. This should be good for the local economy.
