The X-prize?

So a few… okay, I’m getting old <sigh>… it was a long time ago (relatively speaking)… there was a $1million prize put up for the first people to put something into low earth orbit twice in two weeks, IIRC.

What would the guys at FT design that would accomplish this?

I kinda like the double Boeing 777 that was supposed to lift a rocket up higher into the atmosphere before launching it, but I think that got canceled.

If that doesn’t work, how do you guys suggest we get to mars and go make that fly. In a couple decades, you can blame/thank me for the stimulus!
