Masten Space Systems Wins $150k Lunar Lander Challenge Prize! October 8, 2009

Posted by Nick Azer in Google Lunar X Prize, Lunar Lander Challenge 2009, Masten Space Systems.

The 2009 Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge has another winning team—Masten Space Systems!

The first year the competition has had two winners (and only the second year it’s had a winner at all), Mastens’ “Xombie” craft captured a Level One $150,000 purse yesterday (with their “Xoie” craft going for a Level 2 purse on October 28th-29th).

One of the best things about this is the slew of videos Masten produced of the effort—awesome coverage; gets me excited for the kind of coverage we could see from the Google Lunar X PRIZE teams :) Check out the video below, and a bunch of fun on-craft angles at their Youtube:
