Spaceship One hangs in the main gallery at the Air & Space Museum, not far from Columbia. Behind it you can see the Bell X-1 airplane that Chuck Yeager flew past the speed of sound for the first time and to its left is Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis. Spaceship One carried the first private pilot into Space, rocketing to an altitude of just over 100 kilometers. This image was taken at 55mm focal length with an exposure of 1/60 seconds at f/5.6, ISO 400.
