Scheduled take off of White Knight is for 7am Pacific Standard Time (PST), which is 10am Eastern Standard Time (EST), which at this time of the year represents 1400 hrs Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).

Of course, this all takes place on Wednesday, September 29th.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

That makes it 2:00am, Thursday morning here in NZ.

How long will it take from launch to completion? I might have to get up and find myself a webcast that works on dialup.

It''s a webcast... go to the xprize.org entry page and click on the link at the bottom ... very slow and jerky at the mo... and not much happening yet.

You'll need the Windows Media player to view it.

CNN did a pretty good live coverage of the SpaceShipOne's 2'd flight
today. Miles O'Brian, a pilot himself, did a good job keeping me informed.
Well done, Miles! :wink:

:shock: Phew!...That was some spacecraft roll! I'm glad the pilot
pulled out of that one.
