Bangalore: Team Indus, a Noida based ‘aerospace start-up’ is doing something that sounds like a crazy Christopher Nolan cinema script. The team that consists of about 15 members has put all their heads together to do something unique, these men are relentlessly working to send the first privately launched rover to the moon. While all the entrepreneurs around the world are busy developing their signature products to either earn revenue or to give back to the society, this one startup in India is breaking all odds and doing something spectacular which is never heard before.  In fact this is the only team to do it from India and Asia, reports firstpost.com.

Team Indus and their goal of sending a privately launched rover to the moon is for a purpose, The Google Lunar X PRIZE (GLXP). GLXP which is also popularly known as Moon 2.0 is a space competition that is conducted by the X Prize Foundation and is sponsored by Google. The challenge in this competition is quite spooky, the winning award of US$ 30 million will be given to those teams which will build a privately funded spaceflight that would travel across the surface of the moon and it also has to be successful in launching, landing, and then traveling across the surface of the moon with a robot that has the responsibility of sending specified images to the earth.
