Lunar Lander Challenged

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

Cosmic Connection

Alan Boyle has quotes from Bob Clark at Acuity Aerospace and Richard Speck at Micro-Space about their still pretty secret Lunar Lander Challenge entries at Cosmic Log: Lunar Lander Challengers.

Alan suggests delving into the environmental assessment statement for more details on October’s X Prize Cup event. But that could lead to over-inflated eXpectations. Not everything dreamed of in the statement is still on the program. (See Rocket Reality Check, Cosmic Log.)

Should be informative to delve into X Prize Cup’s press releases next week, when the 60-day period preceding the contest begins. From the Lunar Lander Challenge rules and team agreement:

If desired by the Team, Team Registration data will be kept confidential until 60 days before the Flight Attempt date, at which point it will be made public and promoted by XPF.

Looking forward!
