Recently, space has reignited the imaginations of the general public by emerging from the laboratories and propelling itself into mainstream media. With Space X docking with the international space station and JPL's Curiosity landing on Mars, space is the place once again and it has everybody all up in a buzz. So what's next? How does all of this relate to the Google Lunar X PRIZE? Are we the next big step in commercial space? How are our teams doing? All of these are valid questions with many valid, and debatable, answers.
