Lunar Roundup: Moon TV

This week, in the Google Lunar XPRIZE...


Videos galore, as it was all about the MoonTV, with a bunch of different teams featuring in some great clips!:

The Drawing of the Three

First up is a really cool tour with three of the teams: JURBAN , Astrobotic , and Synergy Moon !

Visiting each team's headquarters, CCTVAmerica got hands-on with things like:

...plus a bunch more! It's seriously a great video, full of interesting people and conversations, so don't miss it.

Meanwhile, the other teams were not ones to be left out, posting some cool videos of their own!

Team Italia  showed off their recent rover test:

While Omega Envoy  showed off a runway test of their DART project (which will study Florida's atmospheric dust-conditions):

And Plan B  posted an engaging presentation on their communications---from the beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia skyline:

Synergy Rocket

And following up on that CCTV look at their rocket plans, Synergy Moon  also posted a video of their rocket on a hydraulic test:

Plus, some juicy details: on Facebook, they noted the first tests of the rocket itself will both be this summer---launching to high altitude and suborbital! That's coming up pretty quick, so stay tuned!

Michio


And in a last tease for even more awesome Moon TV...several of the teams, plus some of our own folks, will be chatting with Michio Kaku on CBS! No further details as of yet, but the two teams with the most Google+ followers/presence will be included, so whoever you want to see talk to Michio on a major network---get G+'ing for them! :)

I’ll be rounding these up every week, so keep an eye here for the best developments from our very own moon race.
