X-Prize Cup

I want to go!

Sure, it'll be boring and pointless this year. It's the first time it's been run, after all. It'll have long, painful hours spent doing nothing and a preponderance of propaganda.

But it's a dream come true.

It costs six bucks. For a week of space geeking. And, on Sunday, demonstration launches and tests. By at least four different crafts/engines. If that doesn't give you tingles all over, you have no soul.

Maybe I can wrangle just going down for the seventh, eighth, and ninth...

Dammit, no, that would still cost me $300+, and I just can't afford it. Goddamn it!

If you can go, go. Bring me some swag.

I'll go next year.
