>>Isn't this old news? I thought it was pretty common
>>knowledge (at least among the aerospace/gaming industry)
>>that Carmack was heading such a venture. Unless there were
>>some new developments in that article, I'm not quite sure why
>>that's considered news.

It seems this person knows about it, but just doesn't follows it up... that much.. I guess he expects that the mass media will report it.. when something happens.

>>Welcome to two years ago.

Seems to see it as very old news ;) and seems not to think that there is an OPTION that some OTHER people may not know about it...

>>Well, I didn't know, and I'm speechless. That guy IS amazing!
>>Thxs for the post, grasshopa55...

>>I've known he was part of Armadillo Aerospace for quite some
>>time, but I didn't know about this competition. Those dicks
>>said he was a game designer.

This one knew about Armadillo Aerospace , but not about the xprize...
Again someone who learned something new :)

>>Isnt Carmack supposed to be making me Doom3?
>>Someone tell him to forget about that space bullshit and
>>get back to the game development.

Uwwwww If games is all for that person ;) what a NERD :p:p the world would go down if we where like this fella ;)
(I hope he ment it sarcastic :wink: )

>>Only. Thats all. Any advance they create will be for making money

>>If you want to create *real* advances in science,

>>Currently, most pure science is created at universitys

>>becuase you need to do somthing non capitalist related to

>>So yeah, NASA == Good.

Lol, where is the idea of personal intrest in exploring ? personal sponsoring ? not everyone is so pointed at money.. but some people would love to invest it into the future of humen kind...

Nice to know there is atleast some intrest... too bad they don't find this community...

>>Mr Saturn Posted - 20 October 2002 1:58:49 PM
>>Lets hope his rocket is better than his games.

Some personal opinions... I guess also a lot other people will look the same at space vehicles like he does to games.... some people may find a rocket terrible.. just because the color sucks and it smells... lol
But for games... john carmack really used unique techniques for making games... same he's doing for space :)

Yes it's odd and sad... but I guess it will change in the future, when most people see at least that IT IS POSSIBLE.. when it's a proven succes..

When that happens... we'll be just a few of the thousands of forum members... but we'll remember the real people who helped to get this here active :)

In a brief email exhange I had with John, I found he really knows where he stands on the aerospace industry and with Armadillo's future. I found some of their testing techniques to be wanting in terms of sophistication and formal methodology, but hey, it's a whole new ball game now. I think there's a bright future for Carmack's company, although it may be moving slowly for the time being.

You are right, though; at some point this private space industry will hit critical mass and the media will be all over it.
