Back To The Moon For Good – The New Space Race

2015-06-16

It’s not a joke any longer – Google is really shooting own epic, special effects-laden documentary in response to the TV series titled Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. Its reality show ‪Back To The Moon For Good – The New Space Race, is just another part of the company's Lunar XPrize Contest, which is designed to motivate competing teams from different parts of the world to land a spacecraft on the moon and take photo proves of this journey.

This editor was inspired by the famous speech of Greta Garbo from “Ninotchka”. The...

You may call it whatever: application, admission, CV, “unnecessary sh*t of paper…” But once your request will be denied, you’ll get its significance. The requirements for all universities differ, but the only common thing is an application letter. Except for high overall GPA, you will need to perform own skills, knowledge, life goals, and value you can bring to a particular educational institution.
