Miscellaneous updates

A few updates here at the X Prize Cup just after 1 pm MDT Friday:

  • Apparently the window for Armadillo’s launch has been extended, although exactly when they will attempt their flight remains unknown;
  • At least one team (from the Univ. of Michigan) has climbed the tether in the Space Elevator Games;
  • The only major activity at the Cup in the last hour or so have been F-117 flybys and a flight by a Learjet simulating the course that a Rocket Racing League X-Racer would fly (with course graphics superimposed live on the video screens here. There was also a demonstration of Orion Propulsion’s rocket bike, but it fizzled somewhat.

It looks like there’s setting up for another Rocket Belt demo now.
