Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge 2008 Recap, Day 2

Day 2 was set to be an extremely exciting day, as Armadillo made their attempt at Level 2 with their craft QUAD (Pixel). Sadly, the vehicle fuel valves didn't operate properly, causing an unstable mixture of fuel and LOX, which blew a hole in the side of the engine and tipped the vehicle on its side. So no Level 2 win for Armadillo this year, but with any luck we'll see them again soon.
