Housed at their Aryabhatta Block office in Bangalore, Team Indus is hard at work to win Google’s daunting target — to land a rover on our nearest neighbour in space. If it does, as a contender in the $20-million Google Lunar XPrize (GLXP), it will be the first privately-funded organisation in the world to do so. So far, only three countries have managed this feat — The US during the Apollo Missions in the late 1960s, the Soviets in the 1970s, and China recently in 2013. Of course, the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) has the Chandrayaan II mission scheduled for December 2017 or early 2018. The former is the deadline for Team Indus too.
