The dates and location for the December Google Lunar X PRIZE Team Summit have been fixed as December 15-16, in Mountain View, CA, USA.
More details will be provided later, but the event will focus on discussion of the Guidelines and Master Team Agreement, as well as helping all of our teams find success fundraising. We will only have limited space available for our meetings, so please plan on bringing only two representatives per team—and only registered teams, not LOI signatories or the general public, will be invited.
Yesterday, the X PRIZE Foundation and NASA awarded a $350,000 prize to Armadillo Aerospace for winning Level One of the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge. Today, Armadillo will attempt to win Level Two, which would bring them an additional $1,000,000 in prizes. I hope that Armadillo can serve as an inspiration to all of you—opening the champagne and awarding some money was a lot of fun, and I look forward to doing it again soon, hopefully with one of you! The Lunar Lander Challenge will be webcast live today at http://space.xprize.org/webcast.
