The Penn State Lunar Lion Team gathered in Old Main on Nov. 29 for a group photograph. The Lunar Lion Team, comprised of engineers and scientists from across the University, is joining 28 other teams in the $30 million Google Lunar X Prize Competition. The goal is to land a vehicle on the moon and successfully explore two distinct locations. A production crew from the Big Ten Network was on hand to film a segment of the program 'Impact the World' that will feature the Lunar Lions. The program is slated for a Jan. 2012 broadcast.
