The Google Lunar X-Prize is floundering

The Google Lunar X-Prize is floundering | More Commercial Space News | Scoop.it

The Google Lunar X-Prize (GLXP) is a $30 million purse to be awarded to the first private team to land a rover on the Moon and perform a set list of tasks there. It's been brewing for years. We have been treated to media releases, news of activities by various teams, conferences and speeches. It seemed like such a good idea to start this competition, following in the wake of the Ansari X-Prize for private human spaceflight that was claimed by Space Ship One in 2004.

 

It probably wasn't such a bad idea to introduce some minor deadline extensions when the difficulties of the task became apparent. But enough is enough. The GLXP has been changed and deferred so many times that it's starting to become comical. If its bosses don't draw a clear line in the regolith very soon, they will turn a great project into a fiasco...
