Google Lunar X PRIZE True International Reach

Google Lunar X PRIZE True International Reach

By Astiles  on December 22, 2008

From browsing the Google Lunar X PRIZE website, you might think that only a handful of countries are doing real work on this PRIZE. This couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, there is currently work being done on every continent but Antarctica, with over 40 countries represented.

The map above shows the rough distribution of work being done all over the world, including both registered and letter-of-intent teams. Colors correspond to data such as team members present and team headquartering.

Team FREDNET skews the numbers slightly, since they have such a huge number of members from across the globe. But many of our teams are multi-national. For example, the recently announced team Euroluna cover several European countries; and the first ever team, Odyssey Moon, is working not only in its headquarters nation of the the Isle of Man, but in Canada and the US as well.

We have several new teams on deck that will bring our headquarter count up slightly as well. So stay tuned into the new year.
