    Hey all! This is slightly non-Star Wars related, but its VERY space/science related ;-)

    The XPrize Cup, the worlds largest Space Exposition, is being held this October in Las Cruces New Mexico.

    This is the LARGEST display of rockets, space planes, space elevators, etc... And ALL of the major space companies private and public will be there.

    I am the official XPrize Ambassador to Tucson, and I am forming a Tucson committee in support of the XPrize Cup. We'll be advertising the Cup around Tucson, hosting events for educators and sponsors, and arranging field trips for local schools to bring kids out to see the rockets and see that space is still cool, and VERY real!

    If you're interested, check out

    If you want more info, would like to help out in Tucson, or just have general questions, feel free to either message me or reply to this post.

    Thanks all, and I'm really glad to see the Tucson Fan Force is going strong!
