If, like me, you’re waiting for the email from the Qinetiq 1 mailing list, letting you know when they’re go for launch… it should have been sent out 2 days ago. Also, if you’re waiting for the email from the press mailing list: ditto. Oops.
Anyway, they’re go for launch. Good luck, chaps.
[one of my shows interviewed pilot Colin Prescott nearly 2 years ago: he’s clearly barking, but also a classic adventurer-type. I’d very much like to see the venture succeed – it’s up there with Thrust SSC and the X Prize for sheer balls.]
