    It is sad that no one in the media is picking this up, but it reminds me of “Brave Harriet” by Marissa Moss. It is the true story of Harriet Quimby, the first woman to fly solo across the English Channel. It was an amazing feat; too bad it happened on the same day that the Titanic went down. If you want to read more about Harriet, a wonderful children’s book is available:

    Hopefully the next time we have a privatized space flight go up, the American Economic system won’t be crashing.
