Lunar Lander Challenged

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

Questions about Lunar Lander Challenge

Answers by Will Pomerantz, X Prize Director of Space Projects.

Q: Will there be competitors in Lunar Lander Challenge this year?


Q: Have the rules been changed?

The rules have not been changed, although some clarifications have been made, and a few waivers for 2006 only have been issued.

Q: Have any teams received licenses or experimental permits to fly in Lunar Lander Challenge?

One of the waivers made for 2006 was to relax the timelines for teams to get their permits. This waiver was issued because the experimental permit is a brand new process for the FAA, and anticipating how long it would take them to process applications was difficult.

Q: Have any demo flights been scheduled or completed?

Some demo flights have been scheduled; however, this was also one of the requirements relaxed by waiver for 2006 only.
