In the 1960s, the U.S. and Soviet Union were in a race to the moon. Now, the Lunar X-Prize has challenged today's generation to a do-it-yourself space race. Backed by money from Google, X-Prize is offering as much as $30 million to the team that builds the best privately funded, robotic rover.

Guest:

Peter H. Diamandis, chairman and CEO of the X PRIZE Foundation
