Armadillo Wins!

Armadillo Wins!

Third time was a charm, as Armadillo Aerospace won Level One of the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge. Peter Diamandis, Chairman and CEO of the X PRIZE Foundation, met the team at the staging area with champagne to congratulate them on their $350,000 prize.

Armadillo will fly again tomorrow to compete for the Level Two prize, which is $1 million. Watch them fly on our live webcast at http://space.xprize.org/webcast.

Also competing today in Level One was TrueZer0. Although they did not successfully complete their flight, we congratulate them for making it to the competition!
