What is Lunar Mission One

Lunar Mission One is the most inspirational Moon project since the Apollo landings. Funded by the public it will perform world-leading science into the origin of the Moon and the planets, and it will leave a permanent archive of human life buried at the Moon’s south pole.

On the 17th of December 2014, following a four week crowdfunding campaign launched at the prestigious Royal Society in London, Lunar Mission One successfully raised over $1 million USD. A truly global endeavor, Lunar Mission One does not belong to any one nation. This is reflected in the fact that over 7,000 people from over 70 countries have already backed the project, officially kick-starting the world’s most inclusive space project.
