X-Prize Won

Looks like the X-Prize, a $10M purse for the first privately-built and -operated vessel to fly outside the limits of the atmosphere (space travel, basically), has been won. Hat tip: Samizdata

Some people saw it coming a long time ago. If you're interested at all in this topic, or even if you aren't, do yourself a favour and click here to check out Victor Koman's great novel Kings of the High Frontier, a magnificent and moving story whose vision of privately-funded space travel is starting to be realised.
