White Label Space is one of the official teams running for the Lunar Google X Prize, to put a mission on the Moon (googlelunarxprize.org).
This video shows some of the team's early work on a mock-up of the lander - a full scale and accurate representation of the current White Label Space mission design.
The lander mock-up work started in summer 2010 with a simple cardboard design, which soon after was upgraded to a stronger wooden box. Steel legs and mock-ups of the externally mounted equipment were also added in late 2010.
Work is continuing now on adding functionality to the key equipment onboard the lander and integrated testing with our Japanese rover prototype is planned for later this year (the rover appearing in the video is just a placeholder).
