See Yourself

We choose to put a webcam on the Moon in this decade and do the other things: “A telescope that is set to launch to the moon in 2015 will allow the public to go on the Internet and view the Earth from the lunar surface. The privately funded telescope, known as the International Lunar Observatory precursor (ILO-X), was designed and built by Silicon Valley-based Moon Express Inc. … ‘We want to win the Google Lunar X prize so that is somewhat driving our schedule,’ Richards said, adding his customers want Moon Express to land on the moon before the end of 2015. ‘So I would say sometime in mid-to-late 2015 is when we’d be looking at.’”

Holy celestial viewings, Batman. What an age.
