Team Indus is one of 5 front runners in the GLXP. They have secured a contract on a PSLV rocket which launches in December 2017, when they will fly their rover to the moon aiming to win the top prize of $20M.
Lab2Moon is a global challenge run by Team Indus for students to design an experiment to send to the moon on board their spacecraft. Of the 3000+ entries, LunaDome was selected as one of 8 experiments to be given a place on the spacecraft. Placed in 3rd position, they must now raise $650k from external sponsors to qualify their experiment to be space worthy. They hope to be able to raise a proportion of the funds through crowdfunding.
These University of Bath aerospace engineers designed an experiment named LunaDome, a device that will sustain an earth-like atmosphere in a small dome on the moon's surface. The data collected during this lunar experiment will enable us to understand how the moon may be colonised in the future. The team presented their experiment to the panel of experts in Bangalore in April having reached the final 15 of over 3000 Lab2Moon Challenge teams. They are the only team representing the UK and ask for your support to help them to send their experiment to the moon!Learn More →
