what's his projected schedule?

I don't see it on the Tier One web site. I'd read about it in MSNBC.com's "Cosmic Log". BTW, that's one of the best places to keep up on science headlines and such. Alan Boyle is one of the best popular science journalists working.

Looks like Rutan has some real competition.

The Canadian team has clearance for their first flight on October 2nd. If they get a good flight, the X-Prize may go to who ever has the best turn-around time.

My money's on Rutan. The da Vinci team has a pretty steep hill to climb considering they have yet to fly their hardware.
