This is really really cool. The X Prize has been won. For those of you living under a rock the X Prize was a competition for a privately financed group to design, build and launch a rocketship. The rocket must be able to reach 100 kilometers into the atmosphere and be able to repeat this trip within two weeks of the original succesful flight. The team that achieves this wins 10 million dollars.
This is just one more step in technological evolution. One more step toward the stars. I think this is a very cool and exciting step towards the future.
