Fly me to the moon and back

US startup company Moon Express said last week it had received approval from the government to send an unmanned lander to the moon in 2017, in a first for private industry. The trip is estimated to cost $25 million and promises to be the most expensive private travel venture of all time – well at least until SpaceX confirms its Mars mission.
