Future perfect, past imperfect.

CNN is reporting that William Shatner, among others, have already signed up to ride aboard Branson's VSS Enterprise (Spaceship Two). Sir Richard also announced that nearly $2 billion has already been pledged for tickets on the craft, scheduled to be ready to fly in 2008. (The question is as always, how many of those pledges will turn into real people when the time comes.)

MSNBC is carrying an interesting article by James Oberg on the loss of the Genesis probe and some of the recent problems associated with NASA. (A Slashdot discussion of this story can be found here.)
