Google sponsors $30m lunar X-prize!

Google has announced that they are putting up a 30 million dollar prize to the first team that can land a lunar rover capable of moving 500 meters and transmitting images and data back. This ought to produce some interesting results!

Anyone who can accomplish this for much under $30 million deserves serious praise.

Me likey! :slight_smile:

It’s an uncrewed rover, right?

Don’t the people who win these things generally spend a lot more than the prize amount?

Yes but how much publicity and bussiness would company X get being the first non gov people to send something to the moon?
