Will They Launch From A Carmack Tarmac?

Recommended Posts

A slightly odd reader emailed to point out a article in the Philadelphia Inquirer that provides some info on the two front-runners in the X-Prize sub-orbital flight contest. The two teams are Burt Rutan's Scaled Composites and Doom programmer John Carmack's Armadillo Aerospace. The article makes it clear that one of them will probably claim the prize within the year.

So John Carmack has two big deadlines approaching: winning the X-Prize, and finishing Doom 3. Thanks to insertwackynamehere for the news.

Heh, he better not crash into my house on the way back.

A really stupidly awesome idea would be to launch a ton of doom3 pre-release additions while in orbit. Even though the earth would be pelted with craters, you'd still get doom early.

Heh

they're not going into orbit, it's suborbital, they need like 10 or 20 times the power to reach orbit.
