If you're looking to get in on a piece of that X-Prize pie but find yourself lacking in that little requirement of aerospace engineering expertise, you now have a chance to make up for your chosen career path, with one team competing in the X-Prize's Lunar Lander Challenge offering up a piece of the action on eBay. While it's certainly a gamble, should the team actually win, the one lucky bidder could be taking home up to $650,000 in prize money, not to mention one of the two actual lunar lander vehicles set to take part in the competition. For your trouble, they'll also let you plaster your name or company logo on the sides of the craft. Of course, given that the only glimpse of the vehicle is the mockup seen after the break, the chances of it being ready for the X-Prize competition this October would seem to be a little slim, especially if the bidding stays at the current four digit level. If you've got deep enough pockets, however, you can swoop in a snag it outright for the Buy it Now price of $199,000, giving the team a seemingly much-needed shot in the arm.
