At the 2009 Space Access Society meeting April 2-4 2009 two of the 16 presently registered entrants for the N Prize presented brief introductions to their entries.

Microlaunchers have uploaded their slided and can be found Here

Here are a couple highlights:

Microlaunchers was the fifth listed team, as of June 6, 2008 More important than the prize itself, this creates a lower threshold entry point for developing flying launchers From there, it should be relatively easy to extend the performance of launchers to the originally planned capability of sending small spacecraft to escape velocity, among the Near Earth Asteroids.

Microlaunchers is an attempt to do in space what the Altair and its kind did for computers--to make space exploration available for participation by many--more than just something to read about
