What could be more fun for a little kid than getting to drift off to sleep in your own amazing spaceship? That's the feeling five year old Finn must get each night, ever since his dad used some old discarded TV broadcast gear to create this fantastic spaceship bed.
Almost exactly a year ago, Boeing gave the world a glimpse of its Crew Space Transportation vehicle, the CST-100. It was unclear whether or not the company was looking to augment NASA's efforts with a new craft, or pursue designs of its own. Now we know: Boeing is kick-starting its own commercial spaceflight program.
We love this futuristic yacht concept by designer Hyun-Seok Kim. A winner of the 2011 "Dreamboat" Millennium Yacht Design Award, this baby has some features you don't get on just any old yacht — starting with its distinctly spaceship-esque quality. Take a peek at the gallery below for more shots of Hyun-Seok Kim's winning design.
Two milestones in space tourism were made yesterday: the clean release of the VSS Enterprise, formerly known as the SpaceShipTwo, from its mothership, and for the pilots to fly and land the spaceship back at Mojave Air and Space Port.

Japan's Ikaros solar sail spacecraft has certainly made itself into one to watch. After a successful launch and an equally successful deployment, the ship is now showing off how it maneuvers. High tech as the ship is, its method of steering is simple and genius.
Boeing has announced its plans to produce a low-cost, high-occupancy passenger capsule called the Crew Space Transportation-100 (or CST-100) vehicle. It'll ride at the nose of rockets just like the capsule that came before it, and it could be ready by 2014.
Just think: in your lifetime, you may be able to pay a visit to space without having to be a NASA-trained astronaut. Admittedly, you may have to be a little rich. Our best hope for busting open the frontier of...
As long as having a huge hole cut out of the Millennium Falcon and filled with a propeller doesn't ruin the magic for you, then here's one way that you can borrow Han Solo's ride for a while. Maybe this...
Typically, we show you projects when they're all done, but — you know what? — this time we've come across one that's so awesome we want to give it a little bump. Consider this a PSA. A group of Cylon...
