X Prize for oil spill solutions

The X Prize Foundation, whose mission, “… is to create radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity thereby inspiring the formation of new industries, jobs and the revitalization of markets that are currently stuck,” has launched a $1.4 million oil clean-up challenge for the Gulf Spill.

Now why can’t our government do something like this?  They probably wouldn’t even have to offer a prize if you follow RSA.org’s logic, just check out their really interesting video below.

Thanks Ana for showing me that vid btw.
