The Google Lunar X PRIZE is a competition of 22 teams who are made of people from all over the world. Every so often the team leaders get together and meet in person. I’ve been invited to this meeting, but I need your help to get there.
- a series of Podcasts to chronicle these stories
- a two part book, part 1 is from the prize conception to the middle of the competition (now). Part two will be the second half of the competition
- A Web application so you can keep track of your favorite teams and keep up with their progress
There is A LOT of value in meeting people in person to get their stories. The people in this competition have hopes and dreams and fears and doubts. It’s all part of the story. We can get the technical information anywhere, but it’s their journey that’s really interesting.
I’m all ready half-way there. A super-awesome, anonymous donor has bought me a plane ticket from Washington DC to London… I’m so close! Help me get the rest of the way!
$600 will pay for a plane ticket from London to the Isle of Man and a hotel room to stay in. The X Prize folks are sure to thank you for providing me with a bed and a shower. Mostly the shower. Pee-ewe.
