Hello all,On behalf of the September Pops team, Al and I would like to thank all of you for your heart felt support and kind words through this process. How amazing it is to hear from everyone with such positive things to say! It has been 11 years since we began racing and the joy it has brought us is indefinable. As the years progressed and airplanes increased, so did our crew. They all worked incredibly hard and should be proud of everything they accomplished. As you all know, it takes year round effort, time and investment to field these planes and operate a race program of this caliber. It was always pursued with a fifth gear pined mentality and a heart felt desire to win, by all crew members. We have incredible fans and appreciate the unwavering support, despite where or what our status was each year. This sport is very unique and we are so proud to have been a small part of it. Although the future is changing for us, we will not forget the fans, friends and incredible memories we have made. Thank you again to each and every one of you!Monique Brown and Al Loving

Armadillo Aerospace Takes Level 1 Lunar Lander Prize from Slashdot by Soulskill
jedibfa writes "Las Cruces International Airport came alive with applause and cheers yesterday afternoon as John Carmack's Armadillo Aerospace took the first place prize for the Level 1 challenge of the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge, winning $350,000 and bragging rights. Adding to the excitement of the day, shortly before completing their second qualifying flight, Armadillo Aerospace and The Rocket Racing League announced a joint program to develop a sub-orbital tourist vehicle that will fly out of the New Mexico-based Spaceport America and cost less than $100,000 per ticket. On Sunday, the team will have three opportunities to go for the Level 2 challenge that more closely approximates the required performance for a real lunar landing. Good luck, Armadillo Aerospace, both on Sunday and in your new endeavor!" We discussed preparations for the challenge last week. Several other readers have contributed additional coverage, including the Space Fellowship's live blog of the event, the website for Truezer0, another team participating in the challenge, and a VentureBeat article discussing the economic downturn in space exploration, and how the X-prize competitions figure in. Today's Level 2 challenge will be covered live via webcast.
