Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander ChallengeFor the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge, teams are required to build vehicles that will lift off 150 feet above the ground, hover for 180 seconds and land 100 meters away in an area that is similar to the rocky lunar surface. Three teams are competing for a $1,500,000 prize. Teams must beat the challenge to win the prize.
