Masten Space Systems continues to innovate

Just a little over 6 months after winning the Northrop Grumman Lunar landing X-Prize Masten Space Systems continues to move forward with their VTVL vehicles.

“MOJAVE, Calif., May 26 /PRNewswire/ — Masten Space Systems, a leader in vertical take off, vertical landing (VTVL) rocket vehicles, successfully demonstrated in-air engine re-light capability today at the company’s test facility in Mojave, CA. Xombie, Masten’s most-flown vehicle, carried out the test Wednesday and became the first VTVL vehicle to successfully re-light a rocket engine in flight.” Read the full release here

Just two days ago Masten released a press release that they are partnering with XCOR Aerospace in a venture to jointly pursue NASA unmanned lander projects. You will probably recall XCOR Aerospace for their X-Racers.
