Carrying forward the girl power, we had Sheelika Ravishankar from Team Indus on stage next where she talked about their team’s dream mission to the Moon, as the winner of Google Lunar XPrize Milestone prize. People will have the option to send their names to the moon on a cube on board INDI, the Team Indus Rover!
