X Prize Comments by Mike Griffin

” … “partnership” with NASA is not a synonym for “helping NASA spend its money”. Just as with our international partnerships, I expect commercial and venture capital partners to have “skin in the game”, contributing resources toward a common goal that is greater than that which could be easily afforded by NASA alone, while figuring out how to make a profit from it!”

Editor’s update: The X Prize folks should take this advice under serious consideration given the way they botched TV and webcast issues with NASA.
