EXPERIMENT ON THE MOON
Launching in 2025
This will be the first private Moon mission from the Arab region and the second lunar mission from the United Arab Emirates.
Following the steps of the MBRSC's Emirates Lunar Mission to send UAE's first lunar rover Rashid for lunar exploration purposes and continuing with its initiatives to make space accessible to all, Orbital Space is announcing a new opportunity to send an experiment to the Moon.
We are seeking ideas. Propose an idea for an experiment or a test to be conducted on the moon. The experiment or test hardware must fit within a container with maximum external dimensions of 100 x 100 x 100 mm and a total mass of 200 g.
To avoid biological contamination on the Moon, biological experiments are not allowed
Why should you be excited about this competition?
Opportunity to learn how real scientists conduct their experiments
You can explore a topic that interests you and learn about the environment on the Moon
Learn how science experiments in space are conducted
The uniqueness of the Moon’s environment can enable the development of something new which is not possible to be developed on Earth
University Admissions departments love this! It’s also a great project to reference in job interviews
Purpose of the Mission
To encourage and empower individuals to develop, design and conduct scientific experiments
To increase awareness about space missions and space environment and its potential impact on humanity
