X PRIZE team Scaled Composites plans to launch one pilot aboard SpaceShipOne into space as a precursor for future X PRIZE competitive flights. “Landing SpaceShipOne safely is the number one issue on our mind,” said Director Bob Rice to Space.com. “We’re dealing with parking locations right now. We can fit only so many cars. We’ve got plans for everything. And yes, there will be T-shirts.” source: http://www.xprize.org
