First Google Lunar X PRIZE Compilation of the Year

In the spirit of compilations (and quickly catching up on posting after my time off), here are some collected updates on the Google Lunar X PRIZE.

  • Is this rover going to the Moon? (From Hacked Gadgets DIY Blog).
  • Popular Mechanics has 9 questions on robotics for Matthew Mason, robotics expert from CMU. The Lunar X PRIZE is only mentioned briefly (as is the DARPA Urban Challenge), but it gives some perspective on how CMU, and perhaps therefore the Red Whittaker Lunar X PRIZE team, sees robotics.
  • The Space Fellowship has an interview with Interplanetary Ventures. (link from RLV News)
  • The Space Show has an interview with Odyssey Moon's Robert Richards.
