Repair this planet, not find the next.-- Prince William

In this BBC video (2m 31s) the Duke of Cambridge suggests that "entrepreneurs should focus their resources on solving problems on Earth rather than engaging in a new space race.

"He was speaking to the BBC’s Newscast podcast, before the first ceremony for his new Earthshot Prize this weekend. Five innovative ideas will each be awarded £1m (U. S. $ 1370415.00) to help the planet."

The previous link announces the 15 finalists from which five recipients will be chosen. Each project is briefly described. There is also a short video with Prince William and comments about the nature of the award.
