Back to the Moon for Good
Brilliant, hard-working teams of engineers and scientists are right now competing for the largest incentive prize in history, the Google Lunar XPRIZE.
Their task? To successfully land a robotic spacecraft on the Moon. A feat that has not been accomplished for over 40 years.
Narrated by Tim Allen (the voice of Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story), this 24-min film describes the Moon's origin, documents our past explorations of its surface and shows us a glimpse of its future.
A future created not by government agencies, but by private enterprise and ordinary citizens through the democratisation of space.
NOTE: this is a high-quality educational film funded by Google and can be previewed in full below.
