Tomorrow's the big day.

Tomorrow morning, at around 9am eastern time, SpaceShipOne will attempt the first of the two flights required to win the X-Prize.

Houston Chronicle:

As maverick California aircraft designer Burt Rutan sees it, there's little left to prove — just an impressive $10 million prize and an attractive trophy to collect.

He'll attempt that this week as SpaceShipOne becomes the first of 24 spacecraft teams to compete for the Ansari X Prize, winnings offered to the first private three-seat spacecraft to launch twice within two weeks.

I'm expecting the flight to be covered, at least to some extent, on CNN.
