While that certainly stinks to have $35 GRAND come crashing down to terra firma, the video is indeed very cool. Could you imagine what it must have been like to have been the person with the camera as that tank comes hurtling at you ?!? :eek: :eek:
Says the Armadillo Aerospace site:

In the final total, after accounting for absolutely everything, the vehicle replacement cost is about $40,000 instead of $35,000. The new vehicle has a few more expensive machined parts, so total cost will be about $45,000. To put this in perspective, we could crash a vehicle like this every single week for ten years and still spend less than the Space Ship One development program.
