To Win Google's $30 Million Prize, Florida Students Offer To Fly Your DNA To The Moon

To Win Google's $30 Million Prize, Florida Students Offer To Fly Your DNA To The Moon | Ajarn Donald's Educational News | Scoop.it

A group of Florida students will fly your DNA to the moon if you give them $10,000 to help them build their lunar rover.


They are one of 26 teams participating in Google's Lunar X contest with $30 million in prize money at stake. To win the money the teams' lunar robot has to land on the moon, travel 500 meters and send video, images and data back to the Earth.


Teams also have to be "privately funded" -- meaning no governments. So a Florida team that calls itself Omega Envoy, has turned to Kickstarter to raise $200,000. For its big-wig sponsors pledging $10,000 or more, the Omega Envoy is offering to fly your DNA to the moon, in addition to letting you drive the rover and other assorted goodies.


Omega Envoy is a team from a firm called Earthrise Space Inc. (ESI), a non-profit that matches students and industry professionals to build commercial spacecraft stuff.


So far, the team doesn't have many takers. It's only raised about $2,000 from 37 backers. The biggest pledge so far is $300, which gets you a small-scale model of the Lunar Rover as a prize, plus a T-shirt and other tchotchkes. But there are 17 days left, so here's hoping they make their fundraising goal.


Google selected the teams in 2010 and they have until 2015 to get to the Moon, drive around and take video. Here's the thing the Omega Envoy team is trying to build.

Hugh Herr is building the next generation of bionic limbs, robotic prosthetics inspired by nature's own designs. Herr lost both legs in a climbing accident 30 years ago; now, as the head of the MIT Media Lab’s Biomechatronics group, he shows his incredible technology in a talk that's both technical and deeply personal — with the help of ballroom dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis, who lost her left leg in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, and performs again for the first time on the TED stage.

At MIT, Hugh Herr builds prosthetic knees, legs and ankles that fuse biomechanics with microprocessors to restore normal gait, balance, speed — and perhaps to enhance. Full bio
