CNN: "SpaceShipOne goes for orbit again"
Anyone who has a clue (and not the headline writer at CNN) knows this thing goes straight up, barely past the 62-mile height that is considered "outer space" and straight back down, and is nowhere near making it into orbit around Earth or any other body.

I recall CNN newsanchor banter a few months ago after some odd story I don't remember: "Maybe it REALLY WAS a UFO!" Of cource, if it's unidentified and up in the sky, then it is by definition an Unidentified Flying Object.

My apologies if you don't need these explanations.
