A project developed by a group of experts will allow anyone to launch their own rocket to the moon, must have $5,000 in the pockets to participate in the game. The owner of this idea is Lunar Robotics, one of the groups of experts who was participating in the Google Lunar X Prize, competition whose main goal is to put a robot on the moon.
The intention is not to transform the group into millionaires, but to generate an open idea, allowing more people to have access to the creation and can use the kit, with the possibility of adapting it. Whoever commented on this was Robotics Lunar software engineer Philip Pierce who also stated his willingness to find someone who could make the project cheaper.
For the kit to be realized and tested, Lunar Robotics still needs $25,000 to be made through Kickstarter, a virtual institution that helps fund creative and inventive projects.
Meanwhile, the experts involved are testing the fuels that could be used in the rocket, so far the preferred one is a mixture of ammonium dinitramide with a polymer binder of glycidyl azide, the most used among amateur scientists in the field. To save fuel and achieve speed faster, objects use weather balloons as boosters.
