Public and Private Races to the Moon

New Race to the Moon Could Bring Permanent Bases and Observatories - Discover Magazine - The magazine reports on a lunar exploration conference at the Lunar Science Institute. Public and private efforts are both covered.

How the Google Lunar X Prize Works - How Stuff Works - The only time I recall hearing about "How Stuff Works" is when one of my professors advised us he wanted sources like the Journal of Geophysical Research, not How Stuff Works. Give the marketing team a bonus: it must be a catchy phrase, because that was years ago, and I still remember it, even though I never went to the site until today. Anyway, you're not being graded here, so feel free to check it out.
