Submission + - NASA tests hardware/software on Armadillo Rocket (nasa.gov) 1

porcinist writes: On June 23rd NASA successfully tested hardware and software on an Armadillo Rocket. With the end of NASA's Constellation program in sight, NASA is starting to focus on new, innovative exploration programs like Project-M. This project is meant to land a robotic humanoid on the moon in a thousand days. To meet this goal NASA teamed with Armadillo Aerospace and Draper Labs (The lab responsible for creating the original Apollo Guidance Computer) to integrate and flight test a real-time navigation system in only 7 weeks. This might be the fastest thing NASA has done in 30 years. Maybe NASA is taking Obama's new vision to heart.
