Come Sail Away

As I write this, Cosmos I, Earth's first solar sailing spacecraft, is currently less than three hours from launch. That first in itself is nifty enough, but what's especially cool about this particular space mission is that it's been completely funded and implemented by private citizens, under the auspices of The Planetary Society. Check out the website; it's got a lot of interesting information.
