    The man behind the plane that won the X-prize is planning a competition for Rocket Planes to advance technology and designs similar to the concept behind the X-Prize. Looks pretty cool!

    TOO COOL! I knew the people who developed the rocket plane flown by Dick Rutan. If they could give the thing more endurance, I think this would be a blast!
