Valiant effort today by SpaceX to land the rocket on the drone ship. It landed, but tipped over. I've so enjoyed following these attempts and do think that Elon Musk will likely usher in the era of the reusable rocket, which would eventually reduce the cost of access to space by as much of a factor as a hundred!! My day to day job involves this industry and we are talking massive costs - $60M or more per launch - so this would amount to HUGE savings, and MUCH more access to space. Hope that day comes soon. Btw - today's mission was an overall success as the rest of the rocket is on its way to the International Space Station to deliver 4300 lbs of cargo, including a microgravity espresso machine.  Seriously! Space visitors need their coffee too!Phew! And that's today's space announcement. ‪#‎space‬ ‪#‎spacex‬ ‪#‎reusablerockets‬ ‪#‎rockets‬ ‪#‎rocketscience‬ ‪#‎glxp‬ ‪#‎spacenerd‬ ‪#‎iss‬ ‪#‎ISSpresso‬ ‪#‎falcon9‬ ‪#‎drone‬ ‪#‎droneship‬ ‪#‎elonmusk‬

Teams Hakuto and Astrobotic have agreed to a partnership that will see them hitching a ride on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. If all goes well, they could be on the moon before the end of 2016.

As many of you know, I've been obsessed with space for almost as long as I can remember... which is why I feel extremely fortunate to help run the Google Lunar XPRIZE competition. The Google Lunar XPRIZE is a $30M competition to land a privately funded robot on the moon. The project was set in motion 7 years back and we have 18 teams from around the world still very much in contention. It is the the largest international incentive based prize of all time and aims to open a new era of lunar travel by vastly decreasing the cost of access to the Moon and space.

We acknowledge the extreme difficulty of the task at hand - both from a technical and financial perspective. We've seen incredible team progress over the last several months and for this reason we have decided to extend the deadline for an additional year. Teams now have until 12/31/2016 to land their rovers on the moon and complete the mission.

If you haven't already, please check out http://lunar.xprize.org/ to learn more about the competition and these amazing teams, many of whom have spent the last 7 years of their lives dedicated to making this a reality.

And big congratulations to Team Astrobotic, which has just won $500,000 in the Milestone Prize mobility category and $250,000 for their imaging subsystem. The remainder of the Milestone Prize winners will be announced at the end of January.

As a few of you know, for the last four months I have been working on a daily basis with a young singer from Switzerland - Naeman Meier.
I've never posted anything about him before but couldn't resist. I am SO proud of him. He is one of the most talented, hard working, and inspirational guys I've ever met! He performed this song on Swiss TV the other night. Watch to the end of the song!
