Isn’t life grand!

"Isn’t life grand, to be able to design, build, and operate then just simply watch such a powerful piece of machinery perform exactly as expected."
Those are the words of Russell Blink, an employee of Armadillo Aerospace - builders of the engine for the rocket plane that will be flown in competitions organized by the Rocket Racing League.

The words are from his description of the first flight tests of the plane, which took place in late August at the Oklahoma Spaceport. That decription is part of a report on the construction and testing of the plane at the website of Armadillo Aerospace:
