Post X-prize cup rules   Posted on: Tue Sep 21, 2004 5:05 pm
I can't find 'official' rules on xprize website. Here summary from
http://www.space.com/news/xprize_newmexico_040511.html

Quote:
For the X Prize Cup, teams will compete for cash prizes in each of the following five categories:

-- Fastest turn-around time
-- Maximum number of passengers carried in one flight
-- Total number of passengers carried during the entire X Prize Cup event
-- Maximum altitude attained
-- Fastest flight time from take-off to landing

An overall winner, based on total points scored in each competition, will also be chosen and awarded the X Prize Cup Trophy, which they will retain for one year.


I assume all qualifying flights must reach a minimum altitude [otherwise Armadillo could win #2 with 2 little hops off the ground!].

Will the minimum altitude be 100 km as used in original X-prize (or maybe lower to encourage more competitors)?
