SUMMARY: A Canadian team competing to win the $10 million X-Prize announced that they had completed a major milestone on their entrant, the Canadian Arrow. The team performed a successful test burn of their prototype engine and believe it will now work in actual flight - a main engine test could happen as early as August. Twenty one teams from 5 countries are competing for the X-Prize, which will award $10 million to the first group able to launch a three-person rocket twice in two weeks to an altitude of 100 km.

It's always good to hear of more and more countries getting involved in the Space Industry, and for that I'm happy for these guys and I hope they keep going with their venture, even though the X-Prize proved out of their reach.

But have a look at their space-suits!

Unfortunately, judging by their website, it seems things have slowed down on the Canadian Arrow front of late.
