+ - Open source camera races to the moon->

Submitted by nerdyH
nerdyH (702091) writes "The all-volunteer FREDNET science project vying for Google's Lunar X PRIZE competition will use a Linux camera from Elphel, the same company that supplied Google with imaging gear for its StreetView and Book Library projects. All of Elphel's cameras are completely open source, a good fit for collaborative scientific research projects like Team FREDNET, a FREDNET volunteer writes, because there's no chance for patent NDAs to obstruct innovation. The question is, will the Man in the Moon express privacy concerns, when his cat appears in Google MoonView?"
