By Nick Azer on July 03, 2015
As you may have heard, brilliant German automaker Audi has joined Google Lunar XPRIZE team Part-Time Scientists' mission as a major partner!

For even more on Part-Time Scientists, check out the amazing, article-laden new website that Audi has produced: Mission-to-the-Moon.com! It has tons of more detail on Audi's approach, the evolution and history of the 'Moon rover', the people (like Karsten and Jurgen) on this mission; and more! It's a smorgasborg of futurist's optimism, and a demonstration of just how far along the Google Lunar XPRIZE has caught on, with both the public and mainstream sponsors & partner organizations.
Big sponsors & partners like this have been coming along all year (from Mexico and India, and Japan and Pittsburgh, to the Moon!), so stay tuned---who knows who might be next as we get closer and closer to the Moon!
