Mike Melvill piloted SpaceShipOne on its first flight past the edge of space, (100 kilometers or 62 miles) Flight 15P on June 21, 2004, becoming the first commercial astronaut and the 434th person to go into space.
He was also the pilot on Flight 16P, which was the first competitive flight in the Ansari X-Prize competition!
