Like 1903 all over again

AP Science, via Yahoo!:

SpaceShipOne will try to climb 62 miles up Monday morning, leaving Earth's atmosphere for a few minutes to become the first privately funded, non-governmental manned spacecraft.

The launch is scheduled for 9:30 am Eastern time tomorrow morning. SpaceShip one will release from the "mothership" at 50,000 feet, and rocket out of the atmosphere, at approx. 10:30. It will land at Mojave about 30 mins after that.
