Default First Private Moon Landing Gears Up for Launch by Year's End

"Down by the hard-packed beaches at the edge of the country, the rumble of rocket
launches has defined Florida's Space Coast for more than half a century. But the
end of 2017 could mark the beginning of a new era in solar system exploration. For
the first time in history, a private company is going to launch a mission to land
on another celestial body.

Moon Express (or MoonEx), a space exploration company powered by industry
engineers and Silicon Valley money, is making the final adjustments to its lunar
lander in its facilities at Cape Canaveral. Its goal is to achieve something that
has only been accomplished by the three largest superpowers in the world: a soft
landing on the moon."
