Google Offers Moon Rover Prize

Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin wanted to build their own space ship, but instead will offer $20 million to any company that can land a robotic rover on the moon and beam images of the lunar surface back to earth, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

The search company has teamed with the X Prize Foundation, a non-profit group that awarded $10 million to the company which made the first private, sub-orbital space flight in 2004.

The winning craft must land and roam at least 500 meters and take a series of panoramic images and videos to be streamed on Google’s Web site, reports Times Online. Deadline for the project is the end of 2012.
