  • Title: The Launch Pad
    Descriptive info: .. MoonBots in the Media.. 8/23/2011 01:56:00 PM.. Over the past weekend, the 20.. MoonBots finalists.. were put to the test as their Lego Moon rovers were required to perform live missions for the judging panel.. Teams earned points toward their grand total by carrying out mission objectives (such as finding "water ice" and exploring craters), and were additionally judged on their STEM outreach projects carried out over the summer.. While the winners of the competition won't be officially announced until Thursday, it is worth noting that these teams have done some.. extraordinary.. outreach work, and the media has taken notice.. The following is just one such example.. Team "Just Ducky" were featured on Fox News Twin Cities -- check out the video below to see their robot in action.. Pretty cool.. It's also worth mentioning that Team "Dragonbots" was.. featured on CNN Chile.. -- for a full 14 minutes! The video is not embeddable here, but you can click the image below to watch (note: video in Spanish!).. Congratulations to all of the MoonBots participants -- you all accomplished GREAT things this summer.. Labels:.. GLXP.. ,.. Moonbots.. STEM.. Posted by Amanda Stiles |.. Permalink.. |.. View Comments.. NASA Centennial Challenge Updates: Sample Return, Nanosat, Green Flight, Tether, More.. 8/22/2011 07:26:00 PM.. A lot has been happening related to NASA Centennial Challenges in the last few weeks, so here's an update that focuses mainly on them.. Some teams are anxious to learn more about the rules and team agreement for the Sample Return Robot Challenge:.. Update on Challenge.. Status Update.. - Sample Return Robot Challenge.. As you can see, starting a major prize competition can be quite a challenge in itself.. Team Phoenicia to hold 2nd Nanosat launcher seminar.. - RLV News - From the Team Phoenicia post:.. This will be upgraded to a two day event based on the feedback that we have received.. Food and drink will be provided.. There will be speakers in the vein of last time, but additionally all potential teams that wish to present will be able to do so on a first come, first serve basis until the slots are filled.. Potential suppliers for the teams will also be given time to present as well.. Tech Could Beam Power to Drones - Lasers could power drones in flight and remove the need for gas deliveries to army bases.. - Discovery News covers LaserMotive, the winner of the most recent Beam Power Centennial Challenge.. Also check out the recent tweets from @.. LaserMotive.. at the.. Unmanned Systems North America 2011.. conference.. The conference had some other prize events, including a.. student competition pavilion.. , a photo contest, awards, and the following X PRIZE hint:.. @.. AUVSI.. :.. Diamandis: will announce $10M purse James Cook X Prize next month for AUV that can circumnavigate the globe collecting certain data.. Move Over DARPA: X Prize is Here.. - National Defense Magazine - This covers the Peter Diamandis talk at the conference.. It includes a bit more information about potential prizes, including the James Cook X Challenge for a long-range autonomous underwater vehicle with a sensor suite and an Autonomous Auto X PRIZE that would pick up where the DARPA Challenges left off.. Getting back to the Centennial Challenges, here's some news about the Green Flight Challenge:.. Google to Sponsor Green Flight Challenge.. - CAFE Foundation Blog:.. CAFE (Comparative Aircraft Flight Efficiency) will conduct the event from September 25 through October 2, 2011 at Charles M.. Schulz Sonoma County Airport.. All competing aircraft will be shown to the public at the Google Green Flight Challenge Exposition hosted by NASA at Moffett Field NASA Ames Research Center, from 9 AM to 4 PM on October 3, 2011.. In addition to the main prizes for highest scores, the competition includes a bio-fuel prize and plans for a special Lindbergh Prize for Quietest aircraft, to be presented by Erik Lindbergh, grandson of the renowned winner of aviation s Orteig Prize, Charles Lindbergh.. In addition to the Centennial Challenge news, the CAFE Foundation also has an announcement from Oshkosh 2011:.. PC-Aero Wins Lindbergh Electric Aircraft Vision Award.. The Tether Strength Competition was held at the Space Elevator Conference a few days ago:.. Space Elevator: Going Down?.. - Seattle Weekly.. The 2011 Strong Tether Competition.. - The Space Elevator Blog.. Many competitors in past Centennial Challenges continue their contributions.. The Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge is a great example of this:.. Thoughts on small sat and cube sat market size.. - Unreasonable Rocket..

Before I joined the Google Lunar X PRIZE staff, I had heard a great deal about the Master Team Agreement ( MTA ).. I d read the online comments and the associated speculation.. Now I ve had a chance to get to know this document, I can provide a perspective for you.. Before I get into some specifics, it s worth addressing why we have an MTA.. In a nutshell, it is to define what needs to be done to win the competition(s) and to provide a legal framework for that.. The agreement between the X PRIZE Foundation ( X PRIZE ) and Google that was signed in 2007 includes a number of stipulations about how the competition is to be run along with the requirements for winning the prize(s).. Then there are specific requirements that relate to X PRIZE and Google s goals for the promotion of the space economy and the inspiration of the next generation of scientists and engineers through this competition.. Executing on these goals requires agreement on related items such as logo, media tracking, and approval rights.. There are also important requirements involving liability (working with rockets tends to raise this issue!) and not very exciting things like the reporting requirements from X PRIZE to Google.. All of these items, which are in the agreement between Google and X PRIZE, were the basis behind the requirements that have then been put into the MTA that teams have to sign up to in order to participate in this prize.. It sounds simple enough.. However, drafting a legal document that can cover all the possible issues raised by 28 teams that are various types of entities (from corporations to non-profits) from many different countries is definitely a legal challenge.. In addition, since X PRIZE s original agreement with Google was signed in 2007, new issues have come to light as a result of either technology advancing, experiences with other prizes, or simply coming across a situation that wasn t anticipated back then.. These developments drive the potential for a rethink or a modification.. It doesn t help that there are several sets of attorneys that need to be involved Team attorneys, X PRIZE attorneys, and Google attorneys.. As team registration closed, the MTA needed to be finalized so that X PRIZE s effort could shift to the major promotion of the prize and the teams as quickly as possible with a solid framework for the execution and enforcement of the competition in place.. The document went through various draft iterations over the life of the competition to date first as Guidelines and since 2009 as the MTA.. Many hours of discussion at Team Summits, plus follow up with teams and our counsel, has been devoted to going through all the different issues, trying to balance the requirements set down by X PRIZE and Google with the needs of the teams.. At the start of this year, version 3.. 0 was issued and accepted by the vast majority of the teams.. Just before the signing deadline, additional feedback was received from the remaining teams and X PRIZE agreed to look at a number of modifications which were almost all favorable to Teams and in most cases were simply clarifications of intent.. A version with these changes made was issued, with the expectation that this would be it.. Around the same time, X PRIZE began enforcement of the video and blogging requirements in MTA version 3.. 0.. The debate amongst teams regarding these social media requirements and their enforcement is related but a separate issue from the discussions regarding an amendment of the MTA.. For the MTA, a further and hopefully final amendment is in draft.. It is worth noting that there can only be one MTA in existence.. So, if as a result of ongoing discussions, a new version is produced, it will need to be adopted by all teams to replace MTA version 3.. As MTA version 3.. 0 is legally binding, there are requirements for enforcement, such as the aforementioned social media requirements.. Judging by the ongoing comments from teams, it is this area that is among the most debated.. X PRIZE has a number  ...   For non-employees of the X PRIZE Foundation, such as Trustees and Supporters, there are also strong conflict of interest rules.. As Cristin Dorgelo.. stated.. in response to a commentator raising the issue about an X PRIZE Foundation Trustee who was also involved with a Google Lunar X PRIZE team, there are disclosure and recusing requirements which mean that anyone who has an interest in a competing team has to leave the room when the Google Lunar X PRIZE is discussed.. Trustees and supporters with interest in teams in our competitions have no access to insider information or any influence on operational decisions.. And just as with the NewSpace industry, I don t think its reasonable to assume that there won t be overlap when it comes to individuals.. The community of passionate people who would support the goals of the X PRIZE Foundation and get involved in promoting the concept of.. Revolution through Competition.. is also quite small and connected.. It is not surprising then that some Trustees and supporters have involvement in teams who are doing what they also believe in.. Finally, if all these safeguards weren t enough, in the end, the prize will be judged against objective criteria that are already set and by a team of independent judges.. So unless you re part of the group that believes against all evidence that humans never landed on the Moon in 1969, then presumably you ll believe that the transmissions coming from our nearest neighbor do belong to the winning spacecraft!.. I m sorry if none of this is as interesting as a conspiracy theory, as I enjoy them as much as anyone.. I also know that people who really believe there's something going on will believe that in spite of all evidence and statements made to the contrary, so having said my piece, I'll stop now..
