#11: The Lunar XPRIZE

In late 2017 or early 2018, one or more privately funded and operated spacecraft will land on the moon and explore it. They’ll be competing for the Google Lunar XPRIZE, a competition started almost 10 years ago (and ending soon!), that will award up to $30 million dollars in prizes for lunar exploration. Just 5 teams remain in the competition, all with a very different plan for how to conduct a robotic mission to the moon.
