Name Change; License Granted; and a New Cost Paradigm
A news roundup
by Carol Pinchefsky
The X-Prize has been renamed the Ansari X-Prize after two Iranians, Anousheh and Amir Ansari, contributed an unspecified—but probably spectacular—sum to the X-Prize Foundation.

XCOR Aerospace has received a license from the FAA to test its reusable launch vehicle. XCOR’s license does not cover passengers, although XCOR eventually plans to transport commercial payloads.

Bigelow Aerospace is creating “a new cost paradigm for space station construction.” How? With the Genesis Pathfinder, of course.
