The Launch Pad Off to a Big Start

Well, the X PRIZE Foundation's new blog The Launch Pad is starting with a lot of posts. I'll say for sure that at this rate I won't be able to keep up, so my advise is to get in the habit of checking there or set up a feed. Here's what we have today, though:

Water on the Moon - Will talks about analyzing Moon rock samples and the water detection GLXP bonus prize. How much water actually has to be detected to win?

2008 LLC Teams - Will tells us what he can about Lunar Lander Challenge team registration for 2008. The summary:
  • We will add a few new teams
  • Some teams from last year won't return
  • The overall number of teams competing for each level should be in the same general range as it was in 2007.
Google Lunar X PRIZE Teams by the Numbers - Mike Fabio - Requests for GLXP registration information are analyzed by volume and geography using colorful charts.
