X-Prize Lowballer Blows Up
    #2983809 - 08/10/04 12:31 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

One of the groups competing for the X-Prize were planning on doing the missions on the cheap. Well, they exploded their rocket yesterday, w/ some human simulating dummies on board. (!!!)

It really blows my mind that private entities are doing stuff like this and I wish them the best of luck. I hope someday I can hop on a rocket and see earth from space....

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus

Yes, it's nice to see private enterprise enter the space race. That means more innovation and new ideas. Having said that, I think the Rutan team has the best chance of winning the X-prize.
