Spaceref posts on the possibility that the University of Arizona will work with the CMU Moon Team in their attempt to win the Google Lunar X PRIZE:
Editor's note: Word has it that the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory is looking to partner with Carnegie-Mellon and Raytheon in a Google Lunar X-Prize bid.
If it gets approved by the university, this would be a quite formidable team. The University of Arizona is the first university that comes to my (admittedly non-expert) mind when it comes to planetary science. Perhaps Cal Tech (JPL) or Johns Hopkins (APL) occur first for planetary science probes, but U Az is up there, too. Here are links to the University of Arizona Lunar and Planetary Lab, as well as the important Earth and Space Sciences catalog from the University of Arizona Press. I shouldn't forget the link to the Phoenix Mars Mission.
