Congrats to Armadillo, the LLC event was fun to watch and it was great to hear all the detailed information flowing openly.

One thing that was rather scary to me was the apparent lack of caution on and around the vehicles, like when everybody was crowding around the tipped over Pixel. I guess Armadillo knows what they are doing, but there is a striking contrast between AST/FAA's overanxiety about third parties and the team member's leisurely way of handling dangerous stuff.

I think this was because Pixel itself reported being intact and powered down, i.e. no fuel or oxidizer leakage from the tanks, and a functioning electronics suite. I was concerned about this myself when I saw the non-flight, but John's update alleviated that some.
