Lunar Lander Challenged

One small step for NASA, One giant leap for the X Prize

X Prize Rocket Men

The August issue of Popular Mechanics has a good story on Armadillo Aerospace and its quest to win Lunar Lander Challenge, among other quests.

The cover line is X Prize Rocket Men. The article makes it sound like Armadillo is mostly interested in exploding engines and crashing vehicles, but the quote from X Prize eXecutive board member Gregg Maryniak is encouraging: “I don’t want to jinx them by saying they’re the favorite, but the requirements for this contest happen to be pretty close to what they’ve been doing for the last few years.”
