Hope that long link worked, if not you can read about it at http://www.space.com/

Basically a group is going to be testing a small version of thier space capsule for flight/landing verification.

You may be able to take a trip into space in a few years. :wink:

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.
