Here comes the X-Prize

Scaled Composites has taken a test flight of their Rocket to 210K feet. Pretty amazing that a private company has reached the edge of space. They will be one to watch through the end of the year. If they reach 100KM twice within 2 weeks by Jan 1, 2005 they will receive $10 Million.

It will be interesting to find out how much this project has cost them. I suspect it adds up to a good deal more than the X-Prize.
