Rob Goldsmith writes "Earlier this week we heard that "Cambridge University Spaceflight" would be entering the N-Prize competition. The N-Prize is a competition to stimulate innovation directed towards obtaining cheap access to space. Most importantly, the launch budget must be within £999.99. Cambridge University Spaceflight plan to win the prize using a balloon and a rocket. They have now opened up an official forum where the public can track their progress. Here are some images from a test flight in July, also an interview with a member of the team "Ed Moore"."
