X Prize Cup Bits

There is a great little interview with fellow blogger Paul Breed of Unreasonable Rocket at Wired. It was Unreasonable Rocket that came to Armadillo Aerospace’s assistance on Saturday when they were having issues. Maybe next year they will be ready for the Lunar Challenge.

Armadillo Aerospace’s attempt on Sunday resulted in a fire at the pad that ended this years challenge. Here are some videos from Saturday’s flight. I predict next year Armadillo will have some competition.

Some other bits from the Cup include:
Rocketplane Global announces new Rocketplane XP configuration
Three new teams join the Rocket Racing League
