all good man, though wasnt it said that u have to tell the xprize 100s of days b4 they attempt the flight, so if we have no contenders saying theyll do it by late in the year then they wont be able to do it intime? all looked good though, still think a lot of people are very optimistic about the prize, my initial reaction was that we could have 2 or 3 teams in space by 2005 but im less sure now

The actual rule is

"6. Entrants must specify and provide the X PRIZE Rules Committee with their take-off and landing location, and the date of their launch, not less than 30 days prior to any flight attempt."

The contenders have plenty of time.

And if the x-prize board knows... it doesn't say we have to know.

They may announce it a week or so.. before it will happen.
