"The craft landing area during landing will still be painted with video and video and will even record itself". The spacecraft will orbit the Moon for nearly two months before landing, where it will record and send video and conduct some small science observations using a magnetometer.
This project closed in 2011 as part of the Google Moon XPrize Contest, which offered $ 20 million to check on the Moon.
