Would the new Centennial challenge be something for you Armadillo guys?

To me it looks like it was created for your craft.

Armadillo is on record as planning to compete for it. You can read a little about it here from the March 1st update on the official site (bottom of the page):

I've posted the X PRIZE Foundation press release on the Space Fellowship news page:

I think Armadillo has a good chance winning it :)
