Today is also the third anniversary of the second flight of SpaceShipOne,which garnered it the Ansari X Prize.

and the third anniversary of the death of L. Gordon Cooper, the sixth American in space.

I shall honor these events by attending a lecture given tonight by Sergei Khruschev, whose father helped start the space race.

Wow, somehow I didn't remember that SpaceShipOne earned the prize on Sputnik's anniversary - so cool! I guess it's because I had gotten up so early to watch that day that I wasn't paying attention to the date.

Neat! Updating my post to reflect this.
