Next Giant Leap (NGL) is a team of aerospace engineers partnered with some of the leading aerospace organizations in the nation to provide commercial access to the moon. The team is designing a complete system for taking small payloads to the moon commercially, including launch vehicle, spacecraft, and lander.  NGL is one of the leading contenders in the Google X-Prize, a $30M contest challenging space entrepreneurs to land a small rover on the moon, maneuver it, and send back data.  Last October, Next Giant Leap was awarded a NASA Innovative Lunar Data Demonstrations contract worth up to $10M for providing data related to their initial lunar mission.  For more information, visit www.nextgiantleap.com or contact Chris Pavlovski at chris@jmg.com.
