“Together with Team Puli’s top notch engineering team we aim to make history with the first privately funded and engineered Moon landing.”
The Google Lunar XPRIZE offers $30 million in incentive based prizes for private companies to safely land a remote-controlled robot on the Moon. Half of the sum will be awarded for the first touchdown. The rover has to travel at least 500 meters over the lunar surface and deliver a digital data package back to the Earth. The so-called Mooncast should include high-definition (HD) videos, images and other relevant media. 18 out of the initial 29 teams including Puli Space are currently competing to beat the odds and land on the Moon before the end of 2018. Find out more in our blog and the news.
