The X Prize Foundation has announced that the Conrad Award Scroll inscribed with the names of the winners of a national space-oriented high school competition, will be carried by space tourist Richard Garriott during his October flight to the International Space Station.

The Pete Conrad Spirit of Innovation Award is a competition for teams of high school students to create a concept to benefit the personal spaceflight industry. The winners, Michael Hakimi and Talia Nour-Omid of California, developed an idea for a device that would effectively monitor all of a human being’s vital signs while in space.
