Clicking on the logo does not bring to the site, but to a bigger logo image. Please fix it.

The dominance of US teams in this list is surprising.
Does that mean that they are smarter than the rest of the world or rather that almost exclusively US teams haven taking part at all?

In the latter case, it would be worthwhile to find out why.
Is it due to moonbot.org's marketing strategy or the regulations of the competition?

@Daniele: fixed it (but the site seams temporary down)
@Matthias: Yes mainly US based teams, but remember that they also were the majority from the 75 participating , and that those teams use Moonbots like FLL as a home-school training, and therefore can spend more time on it then European teams that have Moonbots as an after school event.

Hm, yes, only 14 of the 75 participating teams hail from outside the USA.
That's certainly a rather unsatisfying proportion.
