The Woman Behind The X-Prize

We all know about the X-Prize, but until today I didn't know anything about the person offering it... an Iranian woman named Anousheh Ansari. She wanted to be an astronaut (like I did when I was a girl), but was not allowed to be one, and now she's funding a prize for the invention that will allow her to fulfill her dream. What a great, classic American story!
