The show opens with the first era of space exploration in the late 1960s and early 1970s. We see what the era of landers and orbiters taught us about our nearest neighbor including the discovery of the Moon’s origin, composition, structure, and the accessibility of raw materials on its surface.
The Google Lunar XPRIZE is introduced as the largest incentivized competition to date, designed to democratize space and create new opportunities for eventual human and robotic presence on the Moon. We see the engineering and innovation steps taken by the internationally distributed teams competing to land a spacecraft on the Moon and vie for additional prizes. We highlight the human spirit of competition and collaboration as teams take on this audacious challenge.
