Pomerantz Report on Armadillo and RLV Summit

Continuing with the wave of X PRIZE Foundation posts, Will gives us part 1 of his assessment of the RLV Summit involving Air Force and entrepreneurial space representatives finding out how to better work together.

He also assures us that Armadillo is still competing in the LLC.

I didn't get the impression from John's comments (described here along with thoughts from Rand and later thoughts from me) that they were dropping out of the Lunar Lander Challenge, just that they now have a higher priority - their commercial business (e.g.: Rocket Racing League). That in itself is a great victory for the LLC. Here's hoping they get more and that they're able to make their customers happy, even if it does distract them a bit (or more) from the LLC.
