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.
