From Nascar to the Stars

Rocket Racing League graces the cover of the February 2006 edition of Popular Science magazine (on newsstands now). The organization, founded by Granger Whitelaw and X-Prize CEO Peter Diamandis,announced Las Cruces, New Mexico, as their world headquarters last week. The cover story describes the future sport: “Soon, if all goes well, 10 rocket-powered planes. . .belching 10-foot-long orange and yellow flames will speed around a two-mile long, 5,000-foot-high racetrack, competing for a $2 million championship purse.”
