Brilliant News, Amadillo got their FAA clearance.

Lets hope they walk away with the prize money now. :)

As of a few minutes ago, the Armadillo team was moving the Pixel craft around. I have a couple of screen caps, but no way to upload them on this board? :( I did at http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/forums ... 855#M77855

(I hope it's not a bannable offence linking to another spaceflight forum...)

I don't know about you folks, but after accidentally navigating away from the video page, I can't get it to work at all anymore. :(

Freaky, it works perfectly here.. it most likely means the server it connects to is too bussy (too slow to send you the video feed)... I would say.. keep trying.. and if nothing.. reload.. and try again!


I'm myself wondering when we get more info from Armadillo on the live video feed!

Armadillo is now almost 2 hours into their 2.5 hour window, and haven't lifted off yet. I really doubt they will be able to pull off a flight, refuel, another flight, and recovery in half an hour. :(
