So, Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon.com, formed a aeronautics company called Blue Origin a few years back. They’ve been working on the ugliest personal spacecraft ever for a while.

The flight was done on November 13th, 2006 and the ship is called Goddard. If you still think it’s cooler than the Virgin space stuff, check out the BBC article.
