Masten Space Systems completes Level 2 of LLC

Masten Space System joins Armadillo Aerospace in completion of the Northrop Grumman Lunar Landing Challenge Level 2!

Looks like Masten has now bumped Armadillo into 2nd place by having greater accuracy on the landings. First flight today had an accuracy of 28 cm and observers said that the second flight looked the same. This would beat the 89cm of Armadillo.

Incredible flight control and an overall beautiful flights.

Unreasonable Rocket will be trying later today for Level 1 and Level 2 possibly tomorrow.

    Space exploration doesn’t look sexy, but machines that work every time within specified parameters, without fail, is definitely sexy for astronauts lawl.

    I wonder how this guy would handle a strong cross wind. It looks like gyros detect tilt, and that the main thruster actually changes pitch to compensate.
