European Venture Seeks To Raise $1 Million for Lunar Mission |

Moonspike, a company registered in Britain but with its engineering team based in Copenhagen, plans to develop a spacecraft to crash-land a tiny payload on the surface of the moon, as well as a rocket to launch it. The effort, its founders say, is driven as much by curiosity about whether the project is feasible as by any commercial opportunities.
