Britain to launch it's own moonshot ?
According to this BBC News article, proposals are being made for Britain to launch it's own mission to the moon. The proposal involves firing four 'darts' at the moon from orbit, these would contain siesmological instruments and be used to study moonquakes. If that mission is successful, there's even plans for a mission called "Moonraker".
