Google Lunar Xprice is a competition worth $ 30 million. It requires a private company to land a rover on the moon, travel 500 metres and transmit high definition videos and images back to earth. Originally there were 37 teams but by 2017 they reduced to the 5 finalists as follows : – SpaceIL (Israel), Moon Express (US), Synergy Moon (International), TeamIndus (India), and HAKUTO (Japan). Team Indus had a contract with ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) to launch their spacecraft. But the deal ended up falling earlier today as ISRO claims that Indus was unable to follow the guidelines of the deal. It could be that they are out of the moon race. We have to see what the future has in store for us.
