Google Wants You on the Moon!

Google--- the boys and girls who are organizing all knowledge have put up US$30 Million for a contest, called "Google Lunar X Prize".

This Moon 2.0 initiative is open to any company, anywhere in the world and the goal is to land a robotic rover on the moon and send back, a gig abyte of images and video to folks here on Earth.

Google is partnered with the X Prize Foundation for landing a robot on the moon. Any takers?
