On October 4, 2004, SpaceShipOne rocketed into history, becoming the first private manned spacecraft to exceed an altitude of 328,000 feet twice within the span of a 14 day period, thus claiming the ten million dollar Ansari X-Prize.

There are times when only the best will do because frankly, there are no second chances. Scaled Composites chose SR Batteries to manufacture the onboard battery packs for both the inertial guidance and video systems aboard SpaceShipOne.

This certainly isn't the first time our packs have traveled into space, but we're very proud to have been a small part of the project.
