San Francisco - Internet giant Google announced a 30- million-dollar prize Thursday for a team that manages to send an unmanned buggy to the moon and beam back one gigabyte of images and video. The competition will be run by the X Prize Foundation,
Bonus prizes will be won by successfully completing additional
mission tasks such as roving longer distances ( > 5,000 meters), imaging
man made artifacts (e.g. Apollo hardware), discovering water ice, and/or
surviving through a frigid lunar night (approximately 14.5 Earth days).
The competing lunar spacecraft will be equipped with high-definition video
and still cameras, and will send images and data to Earth, which the public
will be able to view on the Google Lunar X PRIZE website.
