The first commercial manned space vehicle is being launched June 21rst.

The privately developed "rocket craft" is being dubbed "SpaceShipOne".

The flight will reach 62 miles into sub-orbital space.

Investor Paul Allen, and aviation technologist Burt Rutan created the program. It will attempt the first non-government flight leaving the Earth's atmosphere.

Note this is not the speed or distance required to continually orbit the earth. But a rare, and big step for civilian kind, under commercialism. Versus say, NASA.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"
