VerySpatial on Odyssey Moon

VerySpatial is a blog on geography and geospatial technologies. This is an area I find interesting, and in fact my paper the semester before my "Space Prizes" paper was on Google Earth as it applied to commercial space.

The linked post is on Odyssey Moon going for the Lunar X PRIZE. It's a brief post without much new if you've already followed the earlier Lunar X PRIZE posts, but it's a nice excuse to point out how vibrant the intersection of space and geography is.

This particular blog has well-populated tags for various interesting and space-friendly categories, such as space (not spatial!), remote sensing, navigation (i.e. GPS), virtual globes like Google Earth and Virtual Earth, virtual environments, and (nicely for the prizes part of Space Prizes) geography contests.
