X Prize tickets on sale

Tickets are now available for the X Prize Cup in New Mexico next month. (Well, maybe not available at the moment I write this Thursday morning: the X Prize cup server was down.) Tickets cost $10/day for adults and $5/day for children and students; two-day passes cost $15 for adults and $10 for students and kids (children under 3 get in free). Active military personnel get free passes with ID, and VIPs (or people who want to spend like VIPs) can buy a $250 two-day pass that includes gourmet food and an open bar.

The press release, not surprisingly, plays up the Centennial Challenges events being held there, including the Lunar Lander Challenge and Space Elevator Games. Also on tap: high-powered rocket launches, “Earth shaking” static engine firings (hopefully not as explosive as last year’s Starchaser engine test), T-38 flybys, and a variety of terrestrial activities.
