Moon 2.0 & The Google Lunar X-PRIZE

The Google Lunar X PRIZE (GLXP) is a $30 million international competition to safely land a robot on the surface of the Moon, travel 500 meters over the lunar surface, and send images and data back to the Earth. Teams must be at least 90% privately funded and must be registered to compete by December 31, 2010. The first team to land on the Moon and complete the mission objectives will be awarded $20 million; the full first prize is available until December 31, 2012. After that date, the first prize will drop to $15 million. The second team to do so will be awarded $5 million. Another $5 million will awarded in bonus prizes. The final deadline for winning the prize is December 31, 2014.

"Moon 2.0" is a revolution in low cost lunar exploration that the Google Lunar X PRIZE is helping to kick-start. The early missions to the Moon's surface in the 60's and 70's were highly inspiring events but they were also very expensive.

The X PRIZE Foundation released this promotional video called "Moon 2.0 - Join the Revolution" to explain the prize and its benefits. Our White Label Space team has also created an International Version of Moon 2.0, which includes subtitles for a number of other languages.
