I know we have been mostly quiet for a long time but as they say space is not easy and although I still think its possible to succeed at the N-Prize within the generous rules laid out by Paul I think the cost of doing so will far exceed the prize money for all the development costs ground based support insurance etc etc. We looked into sponsorship and had no luck there. But as we thought and still do that we had a new way of getting into space cheaply we decided to continued working on the ideas we had with the aim of creating a patent that we could use to raise funds to develop a working prototype. As of this week we are now patent pending
with a 100+ page patent application that has been worked on and refined over a number of years. So if things go well you will hopefully be hearing more about us over the coming months and year. And once we have achieved orbit on a slightly larger scale than the N-Prize needs we hope to refine the technology to a level where we can win the prize if nobody else has done so, though I suspect this will take 2 or 3 years from now providing we can raise the necessary start-up funds. In the mean time I will cheer on anybody else who is also still trying and makes an attempt at it, space is big enough for all of us.
Someone has to tilt at windmills.
So that we know what to do when the real giants come!!!!
