In one week, all the pent-up hopes for space development seem to be popping! Virgin Galactic , Richard Branson's new venture, has signed with Paul G. Allen and Burt Rutan to build a tourist sub-orbital vehicle!
I'm so relieved I can hardly stand it.
Then we see that Robert Bigelow has announce a $50 million prize for an orbital tourist vehicle. The man really does want to get people up to his space hotel!
And of course we're all waiting for a sucCessful X-Prize flight. Go Burt!
