In the real world, the race to the Moon is certainly hotting up, with the participants of the Lunar XPrize pushing to be first to the Moon. Right now, Team Indus appears to be in the lead with a possible December-January launch.

The United States and China both have announced plans to return to the Moon as a precursor to going to Mars.
