2007 X PRIZE Cup begins!

2007 X Prize CupThe 2007 X PRIZE Cup kicks off today at Holloman Air Force Base in Alamogordo, NM! This year the X PRIZE Foundation has teamed up with the Holloman air show to have a joint “Air & Space Expo” instead of two separate events.

One of the signature events at the Air & Space Expo will be the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge, one of the NASA Centennial Challenges. Last year, only one competitor made it onto the field. This year there are rumors of up to nine teams competing for $2 million in prize money. The Space Task Force will give you updates after the competition. May the best teams win!

Until our next live feed, be sure to check out our video update from the launch of STS-120!

STS-120 prepares for launch!

Space Shuttle Mission STS-120 is all fueled and waiting for launch! The Space Task Force has been busy working on the World Space Expo (coming up in only 9 days!) but we are taking a break to watch this amazing launch.

We’ll give you a quick update later today to discuss the launch and the latest space headlines. We’re still working out the technical requirements for our new video podcasts, so this may be a traditional audio-only recording.

Stay tuned as we prepare to launch here at the Kennedy Space Center!
