Dagondanum writes “Armadillo Aerospace has officially won the 2009 Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Defy Upfront 2, on a rainy hour at Caddo Mills, Texas. Reports came in from many locations during the time and spectators posted videos and images using community networking tools such as Bustle. The Flat 2 prizewinning requires the take off to make tracks representing 180 seconds more willingly than disembarkation conscientiously on a simulated lunar plane superficially constructed with craters and boulders. The lowest exit times are suited so that the Uniform 2 pursuit closely simulates the power needed to present a tangible descent from lunar revolution down to the exterior of the Moon. At the outset duty is a prizewinning of $1 million while inferior merchandise is $500,000.”
