Post Nvidia Helps Power Bid For 2015 X-Prize Moon Mission

Today Nvidia announced that the company's Tesla GPUs are being used by a team of German scientists participating in a global competition to land a robotic rover on the moon by 2015.
NVIDIA GPUs will be instrumental in helping us land the Asimov rover safely and allowing us to calculate a wealth of detailed information to enhance our understanding about the lunar surface,' said Robert Böhme, team leader of the PTS team. 'At the same time, we will demonstrate the amazing scientific accomplishments that are possible with modern, high-performance GPU technology.'

Developed to foster a new era of lunar exploration, the Google Lunar X PRIZE offers the largest international incentive prize in history. A total of $30 million will be awarded to the first privately funded teams that safely land a rover on the surface of the moon, drive the rover 500 meters over the lunar surface, and transmit detailed video, images and data back to Earth for further study.
