'Pocari Sweat' may be 'first commercial moon delivery'
Cans of 'Pocari Sweat' may become the first commercial delivery to the moon.
Astrobotic is set to claim the Google Lunar X Prize by becoming the first commercial moon lander as it has agreed to deliver the Japanese sports drink on behalf of Singapore-based firm Astroscale, New Scientist reported.
Greg Sadlier of London Economics said that there have been a number of offers and potential deals mooted, but it is the first commercial deal that's been publicly announced.
Astrobotic has listed shipping fees starting from 2 million dollars per kilogram on its website.
