What about improvement-prizes?

At this board several times improvements have been discussed. The XPRIZE is won now and there will be the XPRIZE CUPs beginning in 2006 - but this is a competion for altitudes, number of passengers and fastest times and not for improvements in general.

So what about a prize for that team that achieves the largest amount of improvements after the first repetition of a flight to at least 100 km?

Such a prize can be donated by less then 1 million dollars. It can be derived from the XPRIZE and the XPRIZE CUP but because of these competition nobody should claim the Foundation to set such a prize.

Yes, very good concept... a rolling series of smaller prizes for various accomplishments would keep interest and enthusiasm up, generate greater publicity, and cause more teams to participate and those that do, to try harder.

I like it.
