SpaceShipOne Pilot Glimpses Edge of Clinton Book Hype By Scott Ott
Mike Melvill, the world’s first private-industry astronaut, said today that as SpaceShipOne reached the zenith of its 62-mile high space flight, he caught a glimpse of the upper edge of the hype surrounding former President Bill Clinton’s new memoir, My Life.
“I saw the curvature of the earth’s atmosphere, the blackness of outer space and shimmering crest of the Clinton book hyposphere,” said Mr. Melvill.
His discovery may put to rest the debate in the scientific community over whether the hype ever comes to an end.
“From what I saw,” said Mr. Melvill, “I think the Clinton book hype eventually folds in on itself, collapsing to form dense, cloudy mass.”
