[![][1]][2]

Former Odyssey Moon Founder and CEO Bob Richards has formed a new team called Moon Express to compete in the Google Lunar X Prize. Not many details thus far on the San Francisco based company, only the following description from the website:

> Moon Express, Inc. (MoonEx) is a privately funded lunar transportation and data services company. We have the experienced people, partners and financial resources to blaze a trail to the Moon and establish new avenues for commercial space activities beyond Earth orbit.

Moon Express was one of six teams awarded [lunar data purchase agreements][3] by NASA last week.
