SpaceshipOne makes history by becoming the first private ship to reach space (62 miles). This is huge news and big step towards getting the human race into space but this 10 million X-Prize hopeful has spent upwards of 20 million so far. Privately funded or not, pretty much only filthy rich and the government can afford something like this.

Now when the average do-it-yourselfer can build a space ship from leftover washing machine parts, now that would be news.

Wonderfalls officially cancelled. John Doe, Fastlane, Firefly and now Wonderfalls. All quality TV and all canceled by FOX because 5100 Nielson Homes would rather watch reality TV.

Instead of using data collected from 5100 trailer park dwellers, why not exclusively use data collected from 1 million Tivo users. I would think that you'd get a more accurate sample.
