The "TEDxBudapest Future 2.0 - The Budapest-Moon distance" was a great informal closing of our Team Summit 2014 Budapest. Finally, here are the talks of the Google Lunar XPRIZE session - enjoy!
In early May, Moon Express CEO Bob Richards was invited to speak to the distinguished audience of EG in Monterey, CA. Bob gave an inspiring talk that encompassed everything from who we are at Moon Express and what we are doing to how and perhaps most importantly why we are doing it.
This summer will be a very exciting time for the Lunar Lion Team as it recently received the first of its new H202 engines. These engines represent a transition from a previous bipropellant LOX/Ethanol propulsion system to a monopropellant one using H2O2. The previous design for a terrestrial rocket-powered prototype called for using a series of pencil thrusters capable of putting out 20lbs of force. The new system will still require the prototype (now named Puma) to demonstrate a 500m hop, but do so using four of the new engines, capable of putting out 100lbs of force.&n
We are having a big media event toward the end of the year and need to expand our media team immediately. If you are looking to contribute to the first private moon mission and have fun doing Press and Media work, join us!

Many months have passed from the beginning of the Balloon Stellar Stratosphere competition. We had 21 teams, 112 participants, press conferences, presentations, workshops, and now it is almost over for this year. We have the winners! Unofficial, for the moment, because the deadline for the appeals has not expired yet.
