Kids weigh in on space travel

September 29, 2004

Albany -- The success of a private rocket ship's flight into space Wednesday may mark the beginning of regular trips to space by ordinary people.

A privately-funded ship named Space-Ship-One landed safely in the California desert.

For 5th graders at Lake Park Elementary in Albany the news of the successful trip was exciting and had their imaginations blasting off.

"In the future it would probably be like driving a car to work but instead of driving a car you would go to another planet in like 10 seconds," says 5th Grader Chris Michas.

Space-ship-one is scheduled to make a second flight on Monday.
