The Dream Chaser's first baby steps.

 

Today, we feature Dream Chaser, a private space plane being built by SpaceDev, a division of Sierra Nevada Corporation just a mile or two from my house. They made the first tethered flight tests out of Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport (locals will know it as Jefferson County Airport) on May 29th.

There’s something good waitin’ down this road
I’m pickin’ up whatever’s mine

Yeah runnin’ down a dream
That never would come to me
Workin’ on a mystery, goin’ wherever it leads
Runnin’ down a dream

(Running Down a Dream, Tom Patty, Mike Campbell, and Jeff Lynne)
