Greetings Listeners, Readers and Participants,

Welcome to our first attempt at “doing news live… sorta”.  Jeff and I have been wanting to get some news on this station for a while.  We thought it might be fun to try and do a show while streaming the process live and trying to get some chat/VOIP interaction. We start out with a bit of a rant and and digression.  William Shatner recorded a special wake up call for the Discovery and crew.  A wake up based on the intro to the original Star Trek series… It was all the rage and all the blogs picked it up.  Wait till you hear all the tunes Captain Kirk beat out.

Lunar X Competition Adds 7 More Contestants

The new space race is well under way.  It has been announced that the contest has added 7 more teams to the finals, bringing the total up to almost 30 contestants.  The teams consist of an eclectic mix of private companies, university teams and even a “mystery team” .    For the 29 entered teams the rules are pretty simple but the task is very hard.  The Google Lunar X Prize of 30 Million dollars will be awarded to the first team that privately launches a space craft, lands it on the moon, has it rove at least 500 meters and, of course,  sends data back to Earth.  The contest was first announced in 2007 and is expected to have a victor by 2015. (Lumpy had an entry idea that was rejected… it involved a very large catapult and snookie… we don’t think he would have won but it had high entertainment value.)
