In case you haven’t heard, the Moon is trending again… and in a big way. Like in the glory days of the 60’s and 70’s, our big white space neighbor is enjoying the attention of lunar explorers. Only this time, they are going back to the Moon for good. In Back to the Moon, we see examples of engineering and innovation as international teams compete to land a spacecraft on the Moon. To win the $30 million Google Lunar X Prize, a team must land a robotic spacecraft on the Moon, navigate 500 meters, and send video back to Earth. Come see a stunning glimpse of what our next lunar adventure may be.
