About a year ago, we went out to Mojave California to watch SpaceShipOne's first flight to space. It was an awesome thing to witness live and we all had a great time. (pics here) Since that was the first commercial (non government) space flight ever they had this poster that said "SpaceShip One / Government Zero" just to jokingly acknowledge that fact.

Remembering that sign made me chuckle at the latest photo I've seen of the White Knight, the plane that carried SpaceShipOne, its now carrying a NASA plane, the X-37. Pic and story here
And to be honest I am all for them working together, anything to further the technology of space travel and exploration, and I will be looking for the first drop test to see how NASAs plane performs.
