We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Next month just might be the month it finally happens: a non-government rocket may finally cross the boundary into space. Ky Michaelson’s Civilian Space eXploration Team (CSXT) has got the i’s dotted and the t’s crossed with the bureaucrats and are now ready for the easy part: sending their rocket up to 62 miles from a Nevada test range. The officially defined altitude at which space begins is 50 miles.

I wish them luck and godspeed.
