Hey. There was no team from Alaska. It was Canada. The prize awarded was 900k. Not 990k. One of the teams was able to make it to the top. Stupid media.

Hey. You haven't backed up a single claim. Stupid troll. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 23:25, 10 November 2009 (UTC)
Or just find an appropriate source and edit the article... :P Csega (talk) 08:03, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
He's from the WSJ and he's jealous that his newspaper can't report news. 128.210.124.120 (talk) 22:22, 11 November 2009 (UTC)
Err, correct me if I'm wrong, but the NASA source at the bottom of the page does support every claim the first commentator stated... Why should the poster be called a troll when every claim stated is backed by the VERY FIRST source to this story?59.120.185.5 (talk) 09:09, 13 November 2009 (UTC)

A correction has been issued. I will raise this issue as this article should have failed a review, or been patched up by the reviewer. Blood Red Sandman (Talk) (Contribs) 11:33, 14 November 2009 (UTC)
