Ten Teams Now Signed Up For Google Moon Race

As the natural sequel to the Ansari X Prize, the race to reach the Moon via private interests seems to be ticking along quite nicely, with ten teams registered as of now. And hey, looking at the X Prize site, I see that they're sponsoring an auto prize as well, and one for genomics and another for building a better lunar lander. That's excellent, a good response to this sort of concern, and it's nice to see private enterprise trying to reward innovation no matter who does it, and it's also nice to see such innovation covering such a wide field of endeavor. It would be nice to see government also trying to reward innovation, although these days that's harder to find, unless it's something for military use.
