They Did It

Private space flight has been achieved. Most cool. ...and Paul Allen shakes the Trailblazer monkey off his back (temporarily).

I'm afraid o' Slim has to watch from above.

But I'll tell you one dangity-dang thing. Them boys got that gol-durn bucket o' bolts shot right up there, sweet as you please. Then they figgered the tricky part jes' right. They guided the ol' girl down like a flake o' Caroliney snow onto that hunk a salty, 2 buh 4 slab o' gen-YOU-ine E Pluribus Unum American desert. Now if that don't beat all.

Relatively Exact:

Actually, I read that the plane actually suffered a potentially dangerous malfunction in its automated flight trim system, but they allowed enough safety leeway that the pilot was able to guide the ship down manually without too much trouble.
