Earthy Idea 


News from the X PRIZE Foundation this weekend: Submit your idea for the newest X PRIZE contest for a chance to win $25,000. 

Remember when Scaled Composites won $10 million for the invention of SpaceShipOne, which carried three people into space and ended NASA’s monopoly on space travel? That was the X PRIZE Foundation, and they didn’t stop there. More contests are currently underway, including the Archon Genomics X PRIZE, which seeks to revolutionize health care by awarding $10 million to the first team of scientists to successfully sequence 100 human genomes in 10 days. There’s also the Google Lunar X PRIZE — $30 million will go to the team that manages to land a robot on the moon, move it 500 meters over the lunar surface, and send images and data back to us on Earth. And don’t forget the Progressive Auto X PRIZE, in which Mother Earth News is participating through contributor Jack McCornack. This prize is designed to speed along the development of a 100 mpg(e) automobile with a sound marketing plan, again for a prize of $10 million. You can watch the car develop here, and read an overview of the entry here and here. McCornack even blogs about the progress in our Energy Matters Blog

Now’s your chance to contribute. With the Foundation’s “What’s Your Crazy Green Idea” contest, you can submit a video containing your idea for the next X PRIZE in the energy and environment category (and hopefully cash in)! 

Best of luck to you all …
