Space Transport Corporation of Washington State with team leaders Eric Meir and Phillip Storm. This team is planning to launch an unpiloted 3-stage rocket to space altitude within the next 60 days.

On November 22nd the High Altitude Research Corporation, Inc. (HARC) announced its entry into the X PRIZE Competition during an unveiling of its working model X PRIZE entry at groups Huntsville, AL research and development facility. Named the "Liberator", HARCs X PRIZE entry launch vehicle uses two LOX-Kerosene regeneratively-cooled engines that are pressure-fed and lightweight. The Liberator is launched from an ocean going vessel and reaches an altitude of approximately 70 miles. The capsule is constructed of lightweight but durable aerospace materials and boasts two safety systems, including a smaller, separate rocket used to remove the crew from danger if the boost vehicle malfunctions. The three crew members, wearing pressure suits, sit tandem with their backs toward the ground to minimize G-loads.
