CNET’s Tim Stevens is traveling the globe to meet the teams chasing the $30M Google Lunar XPRIZE. He stopped by “CBS This Morning” and sat down with Charlie Rose and Gayle King to discuss these innovators, and the competition that will take us back to the moon.
“CBS This Morning” co-host Charlie Rose also took a look at the history of XPRIZE, and its role as an innovation engine that brings about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity.
The Google Lunar XPRIZE announced the twenty-five (25) finalists for the 2014 MoonBots Challenge. The first phase of the challenge required teams of students to do in depth research about lunar exploration and produce a video about “Why we should go back to the Moon for good?” More than three hundred teams from twenty-one countries registered in the annual competition. The level of creativity, imagination and hard work that the teams put into making their videos has been amazing to witness.
