Regolith Challenge 2009 Email

I'm just going to include the whole email:

Hello Everybody,

Just a quick note to let you know that another Regolith ExcavationChallenge is expected later in 2009. In addition, California SpaceAuthority is expected to continue as Co-Host of the event with theCalifornia Space Education and Workforce Institute. We still have a lot of details to be worked out, so stay tuned for more information in the next few weeks.

For those of you who use Twitter (or haven't but are adventurous enough to try it out), you can follow @regolith_chal ( for smaller updates. Milestone level announcements such as rules releases and important dates are planned to be made via this email list. For information about all ofthe NASA Centennial Challenges, you can also follow @nasaprize ( for updates.

Thank you to all of you who have taken the time to express your continued interest in the Regolith Excavation Challenge. We have continued to receive many inquiries since the 2008 Regolith Excavation Challenge event in August. I hope that all of this enthusiasm will help to bring the Regolith Excavation Challenge and the community that surrounds it to a new level in 2009.
