I think ShadowXIX is right about winning the prize. But more important is finding the cheapest most dependable method of launch. I hope even if the prize is won some of the better contenders continue their attempts to privately access space.

Even if Scaled Composites gets there first it does not mean that the other teams are out of luck. If they can make a better product for less they will get all the deals even though they were not first into space. 10 million is a nice prize but the contracts you could get from selling your own craft will be worth far more. I would love to see all the teams get into space. Space travel should not be a goverment only game
