A proposed private space mission is planning to visit Apollo 17's landing site on the Moon. The group, called PT Scientists, is one of 16 teams vying for the $30m Google Lunar X-Prize. It has signed a deal with launch broker Spaceflight Inc to secure a ride on a commercial launcher. The rover are expected to touch down 3-5km from the Apollo 17 landing site in the Moon's Taurus-Littrow valley. It will then drive to within 200m of the lunar rover and inspect it remotely.
