Hello, In what I assume is a first for GNU Radio, open source Google Lunar X Prize contestant Team FREDNET, is planning to use GNU Radio on board their spacecraft to the Moon. I've just written an article about a 'communications lab' the team has recently set up with GNU Radio software and hardware from Ettus Research LLC: http://openspacex.wordpress.com/2008/10/11/moon-am... The efforts to integrate GNU Radio in Team FREDNET's systems is led by Alexandru Csete. Team FREDNET is an international open source effort led by Fred J. Bourgeois. Volunteers are welcome to join: http://www.frednet.com/ Best regards, -- Anders Feder <email@example.com>

Neat for GnuRadio. Regarding LunarX, to me anything to do with the Moon just isn't aiming high enough. Why not a repair mission to a satellite if we're going to stay so close to home anyway? Or the Chandra, Hubble, space station, etc. Space exploration is just stalled. Sad. ...but I digress.
