X-Prize man launches rocket race

BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | X-Prize man launches rocket race: “Peter Diamandis, the man behind the $10m X-Prize for suborbital space travel, has brought forward his new initiative: the Rocket Racing League.

The RRL will see Grand Prix-style races between rocket planes, flown by top pilots through a ‘3D trackway’ just 5,000ft (1,500m) above the ground.”

Fantastic. I hope all the pilots are convicts flying for their chance at freedom. As long as some blond mormon kid doesn’t get a surprise win and become Darth Vader, I’m all for this.

There are few harder things in life than introducing yourself, especially in print where mellifluous nuance can turn to indulgent wankery. So. I am definitely a 'writer'. You could also call me an 'artist'. I could probably put the words 'designer' and 'consultant' here too, but they feel crass.
