Armadillo Wins!

Third time was a charm, as Armadillo Aerospace won Level One of the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge. Peter Diamandis, Chairman and CEO of the X PRIZE Foundation, met the team at the staging area with champagne to congratulate them on their $350,000 prize.

Armadillo will fly again tomorrow to compete for the Level Two prize, which is $1 million. Watch them fly on our live webcast at

Also competing today in Level One was TrueZer0. Although they did not successfully complete their flight, we congratulate them for making it to the competition!
