More brilliant work from your trusted Number One source for brilliance (me, in case you didn't know): I have another X Prize story on Wired News this morning. This one focuses on how much alarm is justified when someone wants to blast off in an untried spaceship:
"...

In trying to break away from costly, slow, government-run methods of developing manned flight systems, how much risk will we tolerate?"
