    I will give the DaVinci Team its due but I still think Rutan's got this with ih his grasp.
    Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.

      Looks like a race Evan. Good luck to your team. I think you & I win if any of them make it. Better if the yall can, even if there is only one "prize."

        Go Canadians. May the better team win.

        We American, can be a smug bunch when it comes to technological acheivement. We got our asses kicked over the America's Cup and we were shocked out of our skills. Form this loss came a world of advanced sailing technology and our loss of complaisancy was well worth the subsequent advances.

        We should earn any victories that come our way just like everyone else: first-est with the most-est against keen competition not by default.

        So I repeat, Go Canada and good luck to you crews.

            "Carrying an eight-track cassette player and a soccer ball kicked by England star David Beckham, the barrel-shaped craft will square off against a better financed U.S. rival SpaceShipOne, backed by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen."

            Hope they have some Newfoundlanders on their team because,as you know, we (Newfoundlanders) can do a lot with a little!!
            Go Canada!!
