The Moon is the closest it has been to the Earth in several years. I thought it was a good opportunity to snap a great photo. This is taken from my hotel in San Francisco, where I'm in town for the Google Lunar X PRIZE Team Summit next week.
Today, we announce that after close consultation with our teams over the last few months, that there will not be a launch attempt by our March 31st, 2018 deadline, and the grand prize of the $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE will go unclaimed.
While we are disappointed at the result, XPRIZE is exploring a number of ways to proceed from here, and we are proud of the impact that the Google Lunar XPRIZE has achieved to date. Stay tuned for exciting updates in the near future.
