Success for Armadillo Aerospace at the 2009 Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge
Armadillo Aerospace successfully completed the requirements for Level Two of the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge yesterday. Braving rain delays, igniter problems, software re-compiles, and muddy roads, they put together two successful 180-second flights within the required 135 minute time period. We offer our heartiest congratulations to Armadillo and our best wishes to the other teams. We look forward to attending launches by team Masten, team Unreasonable Rocket, and perhaps others in the coming weeks.
