Cut and paste from one of the articles: "The tournament cubesat itself
consists of two L-shaped pieces that would split apart, and each piece
would head for the moon's atmosphere." 

How much atmosphere are they hoping for? I hope they are not planning on
using fins and parachutes for stabilization. I gotta think this is a
media screw-up.
