If you are not watching the webcast of the Lunar Lander Challenge, you should be!

It's an exciting, if disappointing morning for the teams. We came in late because of unrelated issues, but made it just in time for TrueZer0's flight....which didn't end well, unfortunately. The vehicle had a stability problem - it seems - and crashed. There was a small peroxide fire. I am curious as to the status of the vehicle: was it totalled? I'd guess yes, but...

Apparently Armadillo made one leg of the flight this morning, but not the second. They are set to try again this afternoon at 3 pm mountain, if we understood correctly.
