As usual, the Armadillo crew documented the event with text, pictures and video, and the story is also covered by Space.com (though without as many cool technical details). It's a bumpy ride, though -- instruments recorded some 10 G's on touchdown."
Comparing information and knowledge is like asking whether the fatness of a
pig is more or less green than the designated hitter rule."
