Armadillo Aerospace failed in its first attempt to win the X Prize Cup at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico. On the return leg of its round trip in the desert, the toy rocket/lander hovered over its landing pad, just shy of $350,000, kicking up clouds of dust. When the dust cleared, the point made here a couple of days ago was provided with an exclaimation point. The craft had tipped over and missed the golden landing zone.
Tell us again the point of all this nonsense?
