    All I can say is wow! Now that the original XPrize has been one, the people involved are going to have a yearly event, which will eventually have multimillion dollar prizes.

    I'm really impressed at how serious this group is to get private/commercial spacecraft a kick in the pants.

    This is great news - I hope to be able to go to one of these cups some day....I'll have to look into next years event, it would be very cool to see all the competitors.....:D

    I think that this is really awesome also. Space exploration itself needs to be kick started. This seems to be just the momentum that is needed. I hope that you will be able to attend future competitions Mr. Anderson. It would be great hearing a first person account. Hopefully it will come with pictures? ;)
