Reaching For The Stars


by Txchnologist Staff

This short film, The Sky is NOT the Limit by Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern, tells the story of Peter Diamandis, the visionary behind the X Prize Foundation. The organization runs public competitions to bring about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity.

The X Prize started as a way to supercharge innovations for space exploration. It offered $10 million to the first team that could successfully launch a reusable manned craft into space twice in two weeks. Scaled Composites, the company behind SpaceShipOne, won the prize in 2004.
