Hi, everybody :)

I take it that this forum is new? I am looking forward to following the progress of the X-prize teams, so i hope you lot can keep me up-to-date 8)

I am currently reading a (rather tedious, yet interesting) book called Firestar by Michael Flynn, about, of all things, near-future space travel. It's good to see that at least the first half of the book is no longer fiction :D

Growing up in the 70's, i expected this to happen long ago, but at least it will be worth the wait to see the space industry finally blossom, assuming that not all of the teams fail :roll:

Also, i hope that the modest numbers here so far will increase substantially as time goes on.

The most competent of all the X-Prize teams appear to be Scaled Composites, LLC headed by Burt Ryan. They have the vision, experience, money, and guts.
