Prize Roundup: Nanosat Launcher Comment, Make Tech Winner, CAFE and EAA Flight Challenges, Lunabotics, More22 May 2011, 21:38 UTC
I have a post about the upcoming 2011 Lunabotics Competition on Space Prizes blog I thought I should mention here, since there's a lot of interest in lunar robotic competitions here. However, I went a bit overboard with that post, doing things like linking 23 Lunabotics videos that make it take a while to load and that bump other posts too far down, so I didn't put the whole thing here.
