X-Prize Contestants Ready To Go
from the watch-out-above-and-below dept
It seems that at least two teams competing for the X-Prize (private groups of people trying to launch people to the edge of space, twice within a two week period) are just about ready to go. The first team is expected to launch within a few months, and the prize coordinator believes there will definitely be a winner within a year. The big question, though, is will there be any fatalities between now and when the prize is awarded?
