X Prize Attempt Scheduled 

SpaceShipOne, the vessel that recently became the first privately funded piloted vehicle to enter space, is now scheduled to commence its official attempt at the X Prize on September 29.  This flight will differ from the test flight in that in addition to the pilot it will have to carry cargo that simulates the mass of two passengers, and the flight will have to be repeated within two weeks of the first successful flight.
