Mohave airport, er spaceport, is where spaceship one was launched. Space ship one, for those who have forgotten, won the X prize in 2004, for being the first successful private enterprise space craft. See the details on Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_Ship_One

Edwards air force base is a few miles down the road. I try to get on, but no dice, there is a tour for Friday, but it is all booked. At the entrance to Edwards is a neat old B52 that was used to carry experimental aircraft up in the air.
