July evokes moon memories like no other time of the year. Forty-eight Julys ago, man landed on the moon, setting off a long race to decipher our planetary neighbour. And earlier this month, Moon Express, the private American company that is competing for the $20 million Google Lunar XPRIZE (GLXP), unveiled its lander and additional missions to the moon.

Predictably, TeamIndus is racing against time, and, of course, money
The Fleet Commander, for the first time, admits he might miss the 28 December deadline and look for another launch window. Does that mean no GLXP for TeamIndus?
