Have you noticed how the stock market is doing recently? Didn't Bigelow make most of his money on real estate? Thats not doing so hot right now either...


Bigelow owns Budget motel chain. He's doing fine...

The prize still seems to be up, but I don't think anyone is expected to win it. That won't stop us at Cererean Astro from trying, despite having only 1 year and not even a single Airship.
