A New Israeli Settlement

It’s not just Hamas who are spending their time developing and studying rockets. Sick of hundreds of them raining down on their land, the Israelis have decided to declare victory in the rocket race by landing one on the moon.

Three Israeli scientists are going for the Google Lunar X Prize where a craft must land and explore the lunar surface and transmit live video back to earth, all for a $30 million prize. They would be the third nation to achieve the technology and are looking to launch in 2013.

A useful bit of kit to have in these changing times…
