NASA announces $250,000 lunar oxygen challenge

05/20/2005 10:46 AM

NASA announced they are having a $250,000 challenge for the first person or company who can extract breathable oxygen from lunar soil. This trend toward challenges reflects the success of the Ansari X-Prize.

NASA is also offering awards of $50,000 each to the first engineers to develop a space-age tether and a wireless method for powering robots.
