According to this article by the Reuters News Service,

"At least 26 other teams [besides Scaled] are also competing for the prize, reportedly involving backers such as Amazon.com Inc. founder Jeff Bezos as well as Google Inc. founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin."

What do you think? Is this a false rumor, or an exciting development.

(Note: Jeff Bezos is not competing for the X PRIZE, but he does have a rocket company called Blue Origin).
