Odyssey Moon Lunar Observatory Announcement

Odyssey Moon Announces Second Customer and Second Mission - Odyssey Moon - This announcement is not only on a demonstration instrument that's planned for the Odyssey Moon GLXP attempt mission, but also on a possible follow-on mission.

Space Age Publishing also covers the International Lunar Observatory.

SpaceDev has also been involved with the project.

Odyssey Moon also has a commercial agreement with Celestis, but I can't get myself to forget about those potential government customers altogether.
