So whatever hacker team can escape the sandbox and disable or take control of the fundamentals outside the sandbox wins?

That's pretty cool competition.

I wonder if they're all going to go for the gold or if some will be fooled by the social engineering aspect that suggests they stop and stay within the sandbox.

I like the psychological intrigue involved in this to truly win there is a strong risk you won't get paid.

Well the hackers be fooled or goaded into limiting themselves for cash? Or will they see through the words and measure the situation to realize a full win requires complete pwning/disablement of the satellite, without being removed from the competition from a legal standpoint before achieving that win.
