The X PRIZE Foundation was established in 1994 as an educational nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring private, entrepreneurial advancements in space travel. Through the X PRIZE — an international competition that will award a $10 million cash prize to the first private team who safely launches and lands a vehicle capable of transporting three people on two consecutive suborbital flights to 100 kilometers altitude — the Foundation plans to challenge present notions that only governments can send people and cargo into space.
The X PRIZE has been created for one purpose: to realize the dream of spaceflight for the general public. New and innovative spaceships will be created in pursuit of the prize. These vehicles will enable such markets as rapid intercontinental passenger and cargo transport, space tourism, and access to the bounty of resources available in space.
There’s no free lunch —- If you want that cash you’ve got to build something which will go as high as 100 kilometers.
