Hello, whonos,

yes, that would be positive - unless it would be a prize competing to the ASP. I would prefer a prize for one detail required to get into orbit (for example).

Very good to read a new post by you - long nothing herad from you.

I guess it's orbital, since I heard that the X PRIZE Was working on one, and they where doing research for NASA for the posibility of an orbital prize.. So I guess.. orbital prize :)..

and whonos, welcome back ;) +- 1.5 months isn't long.. but I hope you enjoyed it with a vacation :)

I've made a wrong guess, it's "X PRIZE Foundation and NASA offer $2.5 million Lunar Lander Challenge"

That syncs well with the VTOVL contest. Dust off DC-X blueprints.
