SpaceShipOne rockets to success
Iranian-born entrepreneur Anousheh Ansari and her brother-in-law Amir Ansari answer questions about the 10 million USD Ansari X Prize at Mojave Airport. The rocket plane SpaceShipOne has shot to an altitude of more than 100km for the second time inside a week to claim the prize. The stubby vehicle raced straight up into the sky over the Mojave Desert in California, US, with test pilot Brian Binnie at the controls. The plane did not roll as it had done on previous flights and set a new record for sub-orbital flight. (AFP/Robyn Beck) >>> See
