Marc's note: On Wednesday Japan and Luxembourg announced an agreement "to cooperate on exploration and commercial utilization of space resources." While this news is noteworthy, there is other news out of Japan today.

iSpace, a New Space company with ambitions to use the moons resources and which manages the Japanese Google Lunar X Prize entry, Hakuto, is set to announce on December 13 what it says "is the largest fund raised in Series A in the global space industry." They will also outline their next mission.

I spoke last week with Dr. Kazuya Yoshida, iSpace CTO, about the Google Lunar X Prize and their future plans. Read the story and listen to the podcast.
