EXPLORERS CLUB FLAG GRANTED
The X PRIZE Foundation has been granted the honor of carrying The Explorers Club flag on the spacecraft that wins the ANSARI X PRIZE. This flag represents an impressive history of courage and accomplishment and has been carried on hundreds of expeditions by Club members since 1918 (www.explorers.org). The Explorers Club flag has been proudly flown from the depths of the ocean to the lunar surface demonstrating the spirit of exploration of the men and women who put it there. The weight of the Flag will be credited as payload/passenger ballast. The X PRIZE Foundation will coordinate with teams to place the Flag aboard all official attempts to win the prize. Credit for arranging his honor goes to X PRIZE Advisor Jonathan Conrad and Special Ops member Nick Skytland (pictured with Peter Diamandis).
