Why don't REALLY send a Segway on the Moon?
Months ago I've made an image of a "Segway on the Moon" that is available on my website (with three other images of Segway) here www.gaetanomarano.it/segway/segway.html
In last months I've published some pages about Space like...
The CREWLESS Space Shuttle http://www.gaetanomarano.it/spaceShu...ceshuttle.html
And VME - Vision for Moonrovers' Exploration www.gaetanomarano.it/moonrovers/moonrovers.html
Since to-day's rockets launch prices are affordable for little-mid companies, I propose a "Moonrovers' Prize Competition" www.gaetanomarano.it/moonprize/moonprize.html
I think that Segway, with its GREAT experience of robotics, may be one of Moonrovers' Race Competitors or one of its Sponsors!
Build a "moonrover" is NOT so complex as may appear, it only need to be made for lunar reduced gravity and lunar temperatures using military-grade parts (that costs more than commercial parts but NOT so much).
Other Competitors or Sponsors may be the same of Segway (Apple, Microsoft, Amazon) or other companies like Ford, Coca Cola, Dell, etc.
I think that a "privates' moon-race" may be VERY interesting and exciting!
