Personal Note:
With the Altair lunar lander to take human beings to the surface of the moon for the first time since Apollo and is part of NASA's Constellation Program... This is Griffin's work.
UPDATE: I had to change this note after realizing that it appears that one of the configurations (above video) is, I believe, of 'INDIA' origin... Maybe this would be like going home... Not only have they recently arrived... Perhaps INDIA might team with NASA, with Griffin (founder), to further expedite this project...
