Off We Go

Slashdot noted GlobalFlyer, the aircraft designed to make the world's first solo unrefueled around-the-world flight, is scheduled to take off on its record-setting mission today. Steve Fossett will be at the controls, and he'll be heading east to take advantage of high-altitude winds. If all goes well he should land back at his Kansas starting point some time Thursday.
