The Space Prizes blog has an account of a podcast given by X Prize Founder Peter Diamandis as part of the Stanford Entrepreneurs program. Diamandis said the foundation plans to expand into the following areas:
- deep sea exploration to map the ocean floor
- a cancer cure prize with Lance Armstrong
- doubling or tripling the human lifespan
The X Prize Foundation also is considering “My X Prize” competitions that would allow local groups to develop their own prize concepts.
