Post SFS News: No XPrize Cup in 2008   Posted on: Wed Jul 09, 2008 6:39 am
The XPrize Foundation informed the public that there won't be an XPrize Cup this year:

„After exploring a number of options, the X PRIZE Foundation has decided that we will not be holding an X PRIZE Cup in 2008. Instead, we will be holding a Lunar Lander Challenge at Holloman Air Force Base on October 24 and 25, 2008. This event will be webcast, but will not be open to the public. We are planning to hold the next Cup sometime in 2009, so stay tuned for more information!“

Feel free to discuss this article in this topic.

Uh oh. What happened?

I thought X cup was very popular. Lots of folks coming, advertisements, banners and stuff. At least that's how it was related (I wasn't lucky enough to participate).
