  • SpaceShipOne, the first privately built craft to reach outer space, now calls the National Air and Space Museum home. It joins other aerospace notables at the Smithsonian museum, including Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of Saint Louis (left) and the Bell X-1 Glamorous Glennis (top), the first to break the sound barrier.

  • Two of the people behind SpaceShipOne are designer Burt Rutan (left) and financial backer Paul Allen, a co-founder of Microsoft.
