Google Lunar X Prize

We are developing a rover to explore for ice at the pole of the moon. The robot will investigate methane, ammonia and water by drilling, heating, and onboard analysis. This “Icebreaker” mission will also claim Google’s Lunar X-Prize. Carnegie Mellon is collaborating with Astrobotic technology to land the first privately funded space robot beyond planet Earth.
