Six continents- twenty-six country submissions later, SHIFTboston, a Google Lunar X PRIZE Partner announced its 2010 Winner this week. Architects, artists, landscape architects, urban designers, industrial designers, planners and engineers proposed Lunar concepts that looked at original designs for a second generation living and working moon habitat. They also had the option to lexplain what they thought of the Moon being a new destination.

The winner was Author, Bryna Andersen of New York, NY USA. Bryna is a graduate student at Columbia University. Her concept was for a microwave provision of terrestrial energy collected with lunar photovoltaics which combines an interesting program and the notion of creating Earth-normal gravity on the lunar surface in a massive rotating torus. The concept was based on American physicist Dr. David Criswell’s proposal for the Lunar Solar Power System.
