Lunar Lion Withdraws From Google Competition
Penn State’s Lunar Lion team’s quest to win the Google Lunar XPRIZE competition is over. The group, which graced the cover of our Nov./Dec. ’13 issue, had aspirations of winning the competition by landing a spacecraft on the moon by the end of this year. The hard work that began in 2011 is not for naught, as the group still plans on reaching the moon within the next decade.
The news was announced in a press release, today. No matter how long it takes, we’re excited to see the team make it to the moon one day.
