Ivan Lavlinsk posts the first blog update from the latest N-Prize entrant.

Today on November 13 of year 2008, the Qi Spacecraft will be registering for the N-Prize competition, how amazing is that?! Yay!!! The N-Prize as some of you may know of it, is a competition sort of like X-Prize Competition were SpaceShipOne from ScaledComposites has aced the space frontier, except the N-Prize is simplier and thus less demanding challenge…but neverthless a competition that is hard to come by these days. Especially for a heart-broken student like me, boy… like I said N-Prize is a competition and the challenge is to put a spacecraft into orbit around Earth for 9 orbits total or more at altitude of 100km or higher, quite demanding…I say. But there is a catch, the N-Prize specifies that the whole venture of engineering spacecraft + rocket must be less than $2000, which is where the troubles arise. Ay.
