    Loosely related to the Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander challenge is the Google Lunar X Prize, which I think is even more intriguing. Unfortunately, my pick to win the X Prize dropped out:

    Apparently the terms were a bit too fluid and a bit too restrictive. I still think Team Cringely will make it to the moon, on its own terms, and hopefully we’ll get to see the whole thing on PBS someday.
