Default $30 million if you can land on moon and send couple of snaps. : Google

Google has offered up to $30 million to the first private organization that is able to land a robotic spacecraft safely on the Earth’s moon.

The fantastic contest offered by Google, in collaboration with the X Prize Foundation – a foundation known for offering challenges for monetary reward – will be open to any “non-governmental entity” that is able to complete the mission.

Specifically, the craft will have to travel at least 500 meters on the Moon’s surface before sending at least one gigabyte of images and videos back to researchers from the Moon.

Official Site: X PRIZE Foundation

Now that is something or what? Do you think we will have enough takers for this?
They say "All interested parties have until 2012 to complete the required tasks to collect the prize. If all teams are unable to complete the task, Google will extend the deadline to 2014, but the prize amount will also drop by $5 million. "

So there, gotta go now, hav to dig out those ol science Texts and start building my 'Moon rover' , You guys could pitch in with your suggestions. If they are worth while, i will let to stand next to the Moon rover and take a couple of snaps..Before I BLAST OFF!
