Goal of this competition is to ignite a new era of planetary exploration by lowering the cost to explore and capturing and inspiring the imagination of a new generation.


Why Moon again? 

Our Moon, the ‘eighth continent’ has a land area larger than Brazil and North America put together… and people have only been to 5% of it! 

There are amazing natural wonders, valuable resources, and unsolved mysteries waiting to be discovered.

Unfortunately, getting to the Moon hasn’t been very cost-effective.

And that’s where the Google Lunar XPRIZE comes in: $30 million in prizes designed to inspire pioneers to do robotic space transport on a budget. Teams from around the world are well on their way to accomplishing this  and ushering in a new era of space frontiers!

To win the main prize

» Team participating must be privately funded upto 90%
   (with no more than 10% of government funding)

» Teams must safely land their spacecraft on the surface of the moon

» Travel 500 meters On, above or below the Moon's surface

» Send back HD Video, Images & Data back to Earth

» All above needs to completed before deadline (December 31st, 2016)
