The front-runner for a $2 million NASA competition to build mock lunar landers has lost one of its two main vehicles in a fiery crash.
on Saturday, Texel burst into flames after it crash landed during a test. Its fuel and liquid oxygen tanks were so damaged in the impact that it would be easier to build a new vehicle from scratch than to repair Texel, says Armadillo test team member Phil Eaton.
