Google announced today that they will give $20 million to the first person or group to put a robotic lander on the moon, take a spin across the lunar landscape, and beam back visuals, with minimal or no government assistance. You can win up to $5 million more for extras like traversing great distances, visiting historic landing sites, and surviving the lunar night. If you land safely but fail to rove you will get a $5 million consolation prize. Check out the details of the Google X Prize and start building your robot.
