Coming Soon: A Story on Lunar Lion

A sneak peek at the stories we’re working on now.

Over the past several months I’ve had an enjoyable back-and-forth editing experience with one of our freelance writers, Patrick Kirchner, as we worked on a piece that we’re both proud of: A look at Lunar Lion, which is the only university-led team competing for the Google X Prize, a race to be “the first privately funded team to send a robot to the moon.” I’ve been bothering Patrick less recently because the story is in our production process for the November/December issue, but we had a brief flurry of emails last week when this news broke: Penn State announced that a partnership with NASA that will allow students to test rocket engines for the agency.

How cool is that?

Equally cool, the Lunar Lion team has been hanging out at the launch of LADEE, which is en route to the moon, where it will study the moon’s thin atmosphere. Follow Lunar Lion on Twitter to get the scoop.

You can read about the partnership with NASA in this news release from Penn State and this piece from Onward State. And, of course, we hope you’ll read Patrick’s piece in our next issue. I promise, you’ll learn a lot.
