In their latest Eclipse e-newsletter UKSEDS have proclaimed “Professor Quatermass has got nothing on us...”: for, in conjunction with the British Interplanetary Society, they are planning to send a cubesat to the moon!
The Moon is moving away from the Earth at a rate of 3 cm/year; can we really afford to let it get away with this?
UKSEDS, together with the British Interplanetary Society, plan to send a CubeSat orbiter to the Moon! We're in the early planning stages yet, but the aim is for a mission in 2013/2014. Resources and support from third parties have recently become available to make this a serious proposition and what we need right now are volunteers. Would you like to be involved, or know someone who does? If so: contact us!
