I have just been informed that the team has carried out the first test run at 9.38am their time, the run was timed at 77mph, the second run was aborted, fingers crossed they will continue to have a good day.

Does anyone know if there is any media coverage planned? - but I guess access at Edwards might make it a bit difficult. Are they making a documentary (of course, we don't want to count our chickens just yet) - but they certainly seem very close now.
Finally, what is the plan for the car after the attempt?
(it would make a great exhibit at GDSF if it could be brought back in time! - oops, perhaps 'the pressure police' might have an opinion or two about that!)
