Lunar Lander Challenged

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

Lunar Lander Challenge Win

The trouble with divining the future by dowsing is that you must be very specific about the question.

The “Yes” answer to the question “Will Armadillo win Lunar Lander Challenge Level 1 tomorrow?” turned out to be slightly misleading because the question did not specifically ask about the prize money. But the answer wasn’t wrong because Armadillo did win. Pixel flew three beautiful one-way flights, did not crash and barely burned.

Other eXciting teams demonstrated their rocket technology prowess and nothing blew up. X Prize Cup is getting better every year.
