Today we announced at our Team Summit at the Googleplex two new competitors in the Google Lunar X PRIZE.
The first is team is Euroluna, hailing from Denmark, Switzerland, and Italy. They aim to win by keeping costs extremely low and minimizing total mass. They liken their rover to a "mobile phone on wheels."
The other team announced today is SELENE, based out of China, but originally from Germany. The team, led by Markus Bindhammer, is designing a rover they call LuRoCa - Lunar Rocket Car.
