Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft™, has recently announced that his new company, Vulcan, Inc., will be launching the first COMMERCIAL spaceship ever!

Let's all hope the damn thing doesn't crash as badly as his former products!

I'm only interested in seeing him fail miserably :D

It always warms my heart to see current/ex Microsoft high-ups fail.

But someone has already sent a private manned vehicle into space. I'll have to find the link, but I saw the article at work, and remember seeing a TV article about the program.

Yea, it was the one that Burt Rutan was working on. They need to go into space, recover to earth and send the same craft back into space within two weeks. They are still in the sub-orbital stage right now.

I believe that Paul Allen is providing the bulk of the funding for the Rutan team.
