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

As he says, we’re not competing in the XPrize Cup Vertical Rocket/Lunar Lander Challenge. 5 people and less than a year is just not enough time to put together a solid entry. This stuff is hard, especially when the head honcho is ana^h^h^h a perfectionist. šŸ˜‰

We’re still planning on being at the X Prize Cup and we’re working out what if anything we’ll do there. We will most likely be showing off the XA-0.1 vehicle, and doing some looooonnnnnnnggggggg engine firings with some throttling.

Best of luck to the remaining teams, especially Armadillo.

Dave
