Another story on the N-Prize

http://www.popularmechanics.com/science ... ?nav=RSS20

The cost of the cheapest-ever satellite launch stands at more than $200,000. So is it possible to send an object into orbit for the cost of a new laptop? That’s the goal behind the N-Prize, a contest organized by U.K. molecular biologist Paul Dear. The winner will have to launch an object weighing about 0.35 to 0.7 ounces into space for less than $1500....

Unfortunately, it has been very difficult to get any kind of print media mentions, for N Prize or for my Microlaunchers--I've had only 2--one of 800 words in an Austrian underground magazine in 1996, and one paragraph on page 15 of the August issue of Popular Mechanics. The URL posted is for an on-line version.

Back in 1994-5 I twice had an article about the Pacific Rocket Society rocket written by freelance authors--one in Wired (google "tired nasa wired amateurs").

It would be very good for all of us to try to get in print or broadcast radio interviews. I've been trying...
