Point to Point Suborbital Competition

Spaceports blog has been quite lately, so I've been wondering what they've been up to. Now I know ... they're working on a new space prize for point to point suborbital transportation. Blogger and lawyer Jack Kennedy has been very active in supporting the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at Wallops Island, and this prize is no exception. If the V PRIZE competition happens, it will be for a suborbital ride from the NASA Wallops Flight Facility to France ... a bit like a modern, Wallops version of the Orteig Prize that the Spirit of St. Louis won!
