Awesome! The first female space tourist was in space!

Everyone is strangely silent about it. I hadn't heard anything about her until just a few moments ago. She's already back down.

Anousheh Ansari is one of the people behind the Ansari X Prize which was in the news not-so-long ago when SpaceShipOne won 8) The prize was meant to spur on space tourism, so it's appropriate that she's getting her shot at it.

I envy having the funds and time necessary for such a venture and the wherewithall to do it.
