Back to the Moon For Good

The Africa2Moon Mission came along too late to enter the Google Lunar X-Prize but that is not to say that both the spirit and ingenuity of this unique competition has not inspired us.

In fact we are in regular communication with X-Prize contenders like Astrobotic! Just like these bleeding edge pioneers, we are also reliant on non-government funding & Donations.

The X-Prize team have produced an excellent feature & FULLDOME PLANETARIUM SHOW called:

Back To The Moon For Good – The New Space Race

OVERVIEW

In case you haven’t heard, the Moon is trending again… and in a big way. Like in the glory days of the 1960s and 1970s, our big white space neighbor is enjoying the attention of lunar explorers. Only this time, they’re going back to the moon for good. The award-winning 24-minute Google Lunar XPRIZE fulldome planetarium show, Back To The Moon For Good, chronicles teams around the world competing for the largest international incentivized prize in history, by landing a robotic spacecraft on the Moon. To win the $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE, a team must land a robotic spacecraft on the Moon, navigate 500 meters over the lunar surface, and send video, images and data back to Earth. This global competition is designed to spark imagination and inspire a renewed commitment to space exploration, not by governments or countries – but by the citizens of the world.
