Great week around the Google Lunar X PRIZE—black magic, cannons, and youth inspiration:
- Team SELENE posted about mail by cannon. Yes, cannon. There’s even test video. (All you need to do is launch bacon out of it and the awesomeness will be complete! :D )
- Team FREDNET signed a memorandum of understanding with Broward College, bringing CubeSat experience :) They also blogged about satellite views of a solar eclipse.
- Team Astrobotic posted video of a test of their rover’s motors! They also continue to cook up Black Magic.
- Team White Label Space‘s rover is receiving a master’s thesis thermal analysis :)
- Team Synergy Moon posted about NASA’s announcement of new Centennial Prizes!
- Team Part Time Scientists uploaded a bunch more pictures of their ILA ’10 presence :)
- Mike Doornbos (of neat podcasting spot Evadot) is taking over the GLXP social media reins for a week (with the Progressive Automotive X PRIZE racing down to its finish)! :)
- NASA Propulsion Academy students visited the GLXP! (Future lunar pioneers? :) )
