Armadillo Aerospace says it has scrubbed this morning's attempt to win the Level 1 prize, due to problems with ignition (or actually, the lack thereof). They'll try again with the Module 1 craft at 12:45 p.m. MT. That means that Armadillo's bid for the big $1 million Level 2 prize in the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge, using its Pixel lunar lander prototype, will likely have to wait until Sunday. I'll work on a posting that gives more of the background in just a bit.
My earlier information on the timing for the afternoon Lunar Lander Challenge was incorrect, but I've made a fix ... just as the Armadillo team hopes to do.
