    not really sure, it's the first I've ever heard of it or plans to do it. just found the story on my local news channel's web site. yea, I think it's pretty cool too, would be nice to get up there and really see what the astronauts (sp?) see each time they reach the outer most atmoshere. talk about some Kodak moments /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    They only have top get to 62 miles 2 times for the $10 million prize. Whats funny is the guy whos paying for everything has at least $20 million into it already.
