Lunar Lander Challenge Wrap-Up October 28, 2008

Posted by Nick Azer in Current News, Google Lunar X Prize, Lunar Lander Challenge 2008, Youtube.

Day 2 of the 2008 Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge turned out to be uneventful. The official X Prize Foundation video recap explains what happened on the only attempt of the day:

Still, it was an exciting event and a great first day, with Armadillo Aerospace taking home the $350,000 prize with a successful flight and TrueZer0 getting a launch off (which, as you’ll see in the video below from the actual craft, didn’t end as well as it started:)

Keep an eye here at Luna C/I for future event coverage as the private space boom and Base Race continue to take shape :)
