The film monitors Google Lunar XPrize competition, a $30 million competition to land a privately funded robot on the Moon by the end of 2015. Except introducing different teams of scientist who applied to compete, visitors will learn about the last Apollo mission, Apollo 17, about complexity of Moon landing as well as its recourses that might be useful for permanent colonization of the Moon.

To win the grand prize private teams: land a robot safely on the Moon, move 500 meters on, above, or below the Moon’s surface; and send back HDTV Mooncasts for everyone to enjoy.
