The X PRIZE Creed<br /><br />We believe that spaceflight should be open to all — not just an elite cadre of government employees or the ultra-rich. We believe that commercial forces will bring spaceflight into a publicly affordable range. We will use our best efforts to achieve this goal.<br /><br />We believe that the resources of space are the key to enhancing the wealth of all nations and people while preserving and repairing the environment of our home planet. We believe that this is our duty to our species and our fellow passengers on spaceship Earth.<br /><br />We believe that the risks involved in human spaceflight are far outweighed by the benefits to the participant and to humanity. We will use our utmost efforts to foster safety for participants, observers and the public in all X PRIZE activities.<br /><br />As we work towards our goal, we will conduct ourselves as individuals and as an organization in accord with the highest standards of fairness, honesty and respect for our partners and the public.<br /><br />http://www.xprize.com/about/our_mission.php<br />

Nice post.<br /><br />When Peter Diamandis came up with the X-prize almost everyone said he was a kook. He is now on the verge of pulling off the desired result. About 6 years start to finish IIRC.<br /><br />With sub-orbital flight under his belt, he should be able to attract the kind of capital to take the next logical step. Meanwhile, Bigelow will be getting his hotels ready . . .<br /> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

Wouldn't the next logical step be LEO? <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>
