GLXP and LLC Lunar Roundup - August 23, 2008

Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge Meeting a Success - Lunar Networks (a supporter of GLXP Team STELLAR) - From the linked X PRIZE Foundation press release:

“We’re looking for a major test program in New Mexico starting in 2010,” said Neil Milburn, Vice President of Armadillo Aerospace. “Probably as many as 100 flights, most of them sub-orbital space before that year is over.”

“Brandon and I went to Los Alamos High School together,” said William Baird, leader of Team Phoenicia. “Having lived here for so long, and coming back, it’s just the perfect time. And if the Spaceport opens up, and we have enough backers, maybe we’ll consider something back here!”
