The Xprize is currently only funded to $5 million, Peter Diamandis has
kinda stalled out on getting more sponsorship- but if the full ten
million were there, several groups would likely be able to get venture
funding to pursue the prize. $1E7 would pay a bunch of wages for a long
time, if managed well...
Take a look at the rocket plane racing thread that was on
sci.space.policy about a month back. More I won't say.
