I like space.com but that story sucked
It's a different kind of race. I'd blame the article's writer for the NASCAR reference - I doubt the X Prize people made it, based on reading past press releases by them.
I suspect whoever wins will spend more than $20 million to do it.
In today's news, SpaceX has landed yet another first stage. That's one on land and 2 by sea. This one was a geo-sync launch so they were surprised themselves at pulling it off. Looks like they AI doing the landing has been learning from all those failed attempts. I wonder if the Falcon Heavy will try to land as one piece, or split into three separate first stages. Gonna need more barges.
I, for one am extremely excited about the inagural Lunar Surface Sprint Cup Formula One E-Prix.
I might be intrigued by this if I thought it was possible for humans or technology to travel to the moon.
I wonder if they'll shorten this event so they don't have to to change to cars with fresh batteries at halfway?
Ryan Newman? Is that you?
And in today's news, SpaceX pulls off not only launching a rocket for the second time, but landing it again so it can be used a third time. And, the payload delivery was totally routine and uneventful.
