X-Prize, 2006

We had the opportunity to attend a few of the X-Prize events in Las Cruces, NM back in 2006. If you aren’t familiar with X-Prize, it was an event to help promote private space exploration.

Among the outdoor events were rocket launches:

lunar lander tests:

NASA jet tests:

and other miscellaneous outdoor displays:

There were booths set up with other demonstrations, including a Mars Rover, which is currently running over my son:

It was a fun weekend. We did some other travel this weekend, and I’ll write a separate page about those.
