They’ve done it again: after being the first team to win a prize in the annual Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge last year, Armadillo Aerospace had another successful attempt in their 2009 effort yesterday:

They claimed a Level 2 prize. Next week, Masten Space Systems will be doing their own Level One prize attempt, with several attempts at the Level 2 coming in October, followed by Unreasonable Rocket‘s shot at both prizes at the end of the month.

For a lot more great videos on yesterday, check out the official X PRIZE Launch Pad post on it :)
