PT Scientists, a German team which is competing as part of the Google Lunar X Prize--one of the competitions run by the Los Angeles-based XPrize Foundation--says that it is likely that SpaceX will deliver a lunar rover, based on the electric powertrain used in Audi's electric vehicles--to the moon, for the company. PT Scientists, based in Germany, said it had not yet confirmed that SpaceX will be the company to launch its lander vehicle on the moon, in a launch effort through space payload broker Spaceflight Industries. PT Scientists is developing a lunar lander (called the Audi Lunar Quattro rover) for the Google Lunar X Prize, which leverages the electric vehicle technology from Audi.
