I Want – A Personal Lunar Lundar

ngllc-patch-2009Missed this over the weekend. The XPrize Lunar Lander Challenge is giving 1,000,000 buckaroos to the first team that can build a lunar lander that:

  • make a round trip between two landing pads
  • refuel at the 2nd landing pad
  • hang in the air for at least 3 minutes during each leg of the round trip
  • land on a pad that is littered with fake lunar boulders

Here is the first leg of flight #1 from Armadillo Aerospace
