X Prize Launch 1
Pat and wife Linda attended the launch of SpaceShipOne from Mojave Airport. The White Knight "mothership" carrying SpaceShipOne took off just a few feet from the VIP viewing area. Viewers were later able to watch the entire rocket boost sequence with the unaided eye as well as a live telecast on a Jumbotron display. After watching the image on the screen rotate dramatically as the rocket went into a spin the image stabilized as Pilot Mike Melvill corrected the vehicle's attitude. About 30 minutes later SpaceShipOne landed on a strip very close to the viewing area. What a trip!
