Confirmed ISDC 2011 Google Lunar X PRIZE Plenary Participants

What is Google Lunar X-Prize?

The Google Lunar X PRIZE is igniting a new era of lunar exploration by offering the largest international incentive prize of all time. A total of $30 million in prizes are available to the first privately funded teams to safely land a robot on the surface of the Moon and have that robot travel 500 meters over the lunar surface and send images and data back to the Earth. Teams must be at least 90% privately funded, though commercially reasonable sales to government customers are allowed without limit. -

Our invitation to the GXLP team:

As a member team of the Google Lunar X-Prize, you know the challenges, both technical and financial, to accomplishing your goals. On the ISDC panel, each team will have the opportunity to share what you have learned; how you've thought outside of the box; how you've developed potentially game-changing technologies; and most importantly, how you've excited future generations through your outreach efforts. In addition to the panel discussion, we invite you to share your team's successes, challenges, and goals, as well as to participate in our exhibit area by showing off your hardware and mockups. - Yohon Lo, HAL5 President, ISDC 2011 Vice Chair.
