The Universe In 101 words: Is the new Moon race on?

The Moon is about to become busier: NASA's sending it's new  capsule to orbit it, and SpaceX will send two space tourists by 2018 - not to land, just to fly over the ancient lunar deserts, silent plains and white-grey mountains. 

With black sky overhead and Earth out of sight it'll be an experience few have ever had... 

...but where's our landing?

Well, not one but five Lunar X-prize teams are scheduled to land robots there this year, aiming to kick start affordable lunar exploration.

And if you 'know' Apollo was faked? 

Move to Hollywood! There'll be lots of studios hiring....
