X Prize - Quick Update

Just a quick update; attended the press conference and found out that while the Scaled Composites team was planning to beat the previous altitude of the X-15 rocketplane, they decided to not burn the rocket engine long enough to go above this altitude. This decision was made by Michael Melvill after he entered into the vertical spin; he decided that it was not safe enough. The team did break the barrier of space, though.
