Google Lunar X PRIZE Roundup #2 - MyMoon

NASA and MyMoon have teamed up to blog about everything lunar. Art, literature, music, movies, science, and everything in between!

All quiet on the twitter front.


The $30 million Google Lunar X PRIZE is an awesome competition for the first private enterprise to land a rover on the Moon (and complete a series of tasks).

With 25 teams all ramping up the action, there’s a lot of news that comes every week!

So every weekend, I’m going to round up the 5 best items from the GLXP’s previous week. Between blogs, tweets, and videos, there’s a lot to choose from!

Little bit of a quiet week, but there’s NASA knowledge, awesome partnerships, and more to be found:


1.) A STELLAR Partnership!

Team STELLAR has bundled up with Slovenian company Arctic on some pretty sweet lander and rover technology:

3.) A Kickstart In the Pants!
