NASA and MyMoon have teamed up to blog about everything lunar. Art, literature, music, movies, science, and everything in between!
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:
2.) John Hancock and the Moon!
Team FREDNET posted a video from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where they talked just how to get a whole mess of signatures up to the Moon:
3.) A Kickstart In the Pants!
Team Omega Envoy launched a Kickstarter project to get creative funds rolling:
4.) Model Citizens!
5.) Some Serious 恭喜恭喜!
Team Barcelona Moon offered up some props for China’s big space milestone this week:
I’ll be rounding these up these each week, so check back to see what kinds of cool things are going down with the Google Lunar X PRIZE teams!
