Back to the Moon for Good — Fulldome Trailer
After the Space Race of the 1960s, interest in the Moon quickly waned. The Google Lunar X Prize is hoping to change that, reinvigorating interest in Moon exploration and colonisation. This time, however, it's different. A $30 million dollar prize is being offered to all citizens of the world, not governmental space corporations, for achieving a successful Moon mission. The initiative is designed to instil a new generation with the wonders and importance of space travel and exploration.
The criteria for winning the prize will involve landing a module on the surface, travelling at least 500 metres, and returning HD images and videos back to Earth. Established in 2007, the mission deadline has been extended to December 2017, with three teams still in contention as of 2016: SpaceIL, Moon Express and Synergy Moon.
An award-winning, 24-minute fulldome planetarium show, "Back to the Moon for Good", chronicles these teams' efforts as they compete for the coveted prize. Such films will be played in the upcoming ESO Supernova Planetarium & Visitor Centre, which will open in spring 2018 in Munich, Germany.
