Post Romanian X-Prize team   Posted on: Mon Aug 11, 2003 11:12 pm
It seems that most of the X-Prize "buzz" focuses on a few teams: Scaled Composites, Armadillo, Canadian Arrow, da Vinci, and Starchaser.

But the one team from continental Europe also seems to be making lots of progress - Aeronautics and Cosmonautics Romanian Association (ARCA) .

Looking at their website, the latest news is:

May 13: ARCA starts building launch pad, to be finished by August.

July 31: ARCA successfully tests fuel tanks to be used in the precursor vehicle to the X-Prize entry, built at 1:2 scale. "It will be presented in late august in a complete ready for flight configuration."
