"The thoughts of all of us at the XPRIZE Foundation are with the families of the brave test pilots of SpaceShipTwo. An endeavor this bold comes with calculated risk, as have countless other endeavors to explore our world and to expand our horizons throughout history. We believe that the ultimate benefits to humanity far outweigh the risks involved in human spaceflight. We support the pioneering efforts of Virgin Galactic and Scaled Composites and we must all resolve that the courage of these pilots is never forgotten and their cause never abandoned.” - Robert K. Weiss, president and vice-chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation
