This is an Estes model of Burt Rutan's SpaceShip One. The real SpaceShip One made by Scaled Composites LLC was the first privately funded aircraft to carry a man higher than 62 miles beyond Earth's atmosphere and return him safely twice within 2 weeks earning it the Ansari X Prize. Our 12" model carries a nosecone weighted with modeling clay to altitudes of .08 miles. SING IT BOYS! Burt Rutan is like so cool...we wrote him a song!
