The Space Cowboys?

There was a good overview article on private space flight developments recently in Time magazine (March 5 issue), and it's available on-line now. Of course it begins with the best-known space entrepreneur, Sir Richard Branson, though it also discusses a number of private space ventures other than his Virgin Galactic. The on-line article refers you to the hard copy magazine for a detailed diagram of the flight profile for the proposed SpaceShipTwo, but there's a good substitute here (click the image at the very bottom of the gallery page, JOURNEY). There are some other good photos and diagrams on that page as well. OK, I've said it before: I want to go!
