    Greetings !

    Bloody h**l , I was hoping the Russians would
    win. Not because they are Russians :wink:, but
    because I thought they had the best design
    so far - a small and fully reusable rocket launched
    from an AN-124 freighter plane (advisably as it flies
    east above the equator - to maximize momentum).
    I mean, there's just no real innovation in
    a simple rocket and I bet the costs are relativly
    high compared to a number of other projects.

    BTW, the official site with all the projects in
    detail can be found here: www.XPRIZE.com

    Live long and prosper.
