Cool X-Prize Cup Videos


Space.com has a cool new video feature section covering a multitude of challenges at the 2006 Wirefly X-Prize Cup, and as long as you don't mind watching a few commercials they really aren't half bad.

You can check their main video archive here.

There is some cool footage of the Space Elevator competition, the new lunar lander being designed by Armadillo Aerospace, and some general footage of the entire event. There are also interviews with Peter Diamandis, founder of the X-Prize Cup (and Bronx native) and John Carmack, co-founder of id Software and founder of Armadillo Aerospace.

Now into its third year, the X-Prize Cup stands poised to usher in the 21st Century as imagined by science fiction writers, engineers and dreamers for as long as we have had such pursuits...
