XCOR Announces Suborbital Lynx

XCOR Aerospace announced today the development of a suborbital vehicle called the Lynx. It is a two seat craft that will blast off from a runway to 61km where passengers will experience 4.5 minutes of weightlessness and land on a runway. XCOR expects the craft to take off in 2010.

[update] The Wall Street Journal is reporting the trip will cost $100,000, or half the cost of a Virgin Galactic Flight (while be admittedly shorter).
