This Indian startup is aiming to land on moon for $30 million!
Here's an inspiring story of a startup who is vying to touchdown on the lunar surface and create a national-level history.

India-based TeamIndus is working to travel to the moon's surface. TeamIndus, a space technology enterprise, recently announced a verified commercial launch contract with the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) for its historic mission to land a spacecraft on the moon as part of its bid to win the Google Lunar XPRIZE.
TeamIndus is the only Indian team competing for the Google Lunar XPRIZE. The goal of the unprecedented $30 million Google Lunar XPRIZE is to ignite a new era of space exploration by lowering the cost and inspiring the imagination of the next generation. To win the prize, privately funded teams must land their spacecraft on the surface of moon, travel 500 meters and broadcast high definition video, images and data back to earth.
In late 2017, almost seven years after a group of Indian entrepreneurs with no aerospace experience signed up to make an impossible dream come true, TeamIndus will launch its spacecraft bound for the moon aboard the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV).
This will set path on potentially becoming the first private entity in the world to soft-land on the lunar surface, a feat previously accomplished by the USSR, United States and China. Before TeamIndus prepares its rover to take off, TechGig.com got an opportunity for a chit-chat with its key team members Rahul Narayan and Sameer Joshi.
