Jun 23, 2004 In case you weren't one of the 10,000 plus people who made the trip to Mojave airport to watch Monday's launch of SpaceShipOne, here's a photo gallery of images from that amazing day. A special thanks to correspondent and photographer Tony Hesch for taking these amazing photos from the event. And a big thanks to Scaled Composites for giving universe Today backstage access to all the action. I really wish I could have made the trip myself... maybe next time.
A fleet of media trucks and their satellite dishes. The universe Today truck is just outside the frame... ;-)
