A part time scientists' perspective of getting to the moon

presenting the first German Team participating in the GoogleLunarXPrize

We want to use the opportunity the 26C3 presents as a venue to introduce our team. The Part-Time-Scientists are the first German team participating in the Google Lunar X PRIZE. Our presentation would kick off with a quick explanation of what the X PRIZE is, the challenges and gains.

The main part of the presentation will then focus on our progress. That includes a showcase of some hard- and software we're using. Additionally pictures and videos specifically created for the 26C3. And a brief overview of the GoogleLunarXPrize and it's overall progress.

The main part of the presentation will then focus on our progress. That includes a showcase of some hard- and software we're using. Additionally pictures and videos specifically created for the 26C3. Some examples of interesting hardware appliance:

Xilinx FPGA * Self designed Boardcomputer (Linux based) * Special HD CCMOS sensors * HiRel certified components * CAD/CAM designs

The presentation will be held by 1-3 members of our team. So that we have someone from every area of expertise available for possible questions from the audience. The following Q&A part should prove to be very interesting.
