Hmmm. Seems like a very expensive investment and risky. I've watched WW2 fighter plane racing but this just sounds weird. Have to keep my eye on this.
NEW YORK (CNN) -- It sounds like NASA meets NASCAR: rocket-propelled aircraft racing through the sky at hundreds of miles an hour, while millions of fans watch in stadiums and on TV.
Peter Diamandis, founder of the aerospace Ansari X Prize, plans to turn what sounds like science fiction into reality in about a year.
At a ceremony Monday in New York, Diamandis unveiled the Rocket Racing League as its co-founder and chairman.
Is this going to be on international tv too? Seems awsome to me. Nice find :)
"rocket-propelled aircraft racing through the sky at hundreds of miles an hour, while millions of fans watch in stadiums and on TV."
If it will be on international tv im going to watch it :) Sounds awesome.
well, seems its pretty expensive, so guess it'll be on international TV.. i atleast hope so.. it could be cool..
Sounds like fun. I think they have a good chance of making a successful new sport. They've taken propeller aircraft racing as fast as it can go, so this is the next logical step.
Gonna need a heap of rich sponsors to keep it going though.
When in doubt, gas it!
Thats crazy. You need to be stupid to do that.

Well, i might watch it if it goes through, but to me this sounds insane. To be flying jets in a race is bad enough, but if its going to be in front of a large-scale audience, this means 40 planes or so racing around...well, i have no idea, Grand Canyon to The Alamo and back?
Sounds like a death-wish to me.
WE race just about every thing else so why not rockets. Would be interesting to see.
