From Alan Boyle's Cosmic Log:<br /><br /><i>‘Go’ for Russia's SpaceShipOne: Russia's RIA-Novosti news agency is reporting that Suborbital Corp.'s Cosmopolis XXI project — a rocketplane-plus-carrier concept that some have compared to Scaled Composites' SpaceShipOne — is moving forward and could be ready for flight in early 2005. That confirms what Space Adventures' Eric Anderson told me last month, although Anderson says 2007 is a more realistic date for the start of flight operations. California millionaire Dennis Tito, the world's first space passenger to pay his own way, is thought to be one of the Western investors fueling Suborbital's plans.</i><br />
