Our mission is to redefine possible by returning to the Moon and unlocking its mysteries and resources for the benefit of humanity. We welcome expedition and payload partners on our commercial missions of opportunity. Our MX explorer systems are also available for charter and customer owned missions, delivering breakthrough opportunities for scientific and commercial exploration at an unprecedented low cost.
SUPPORTING CANADA'S LUNAR INITIATIVES
Moon Express has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) to explore options for collaboration with the CSA and Canada’s space sector on technologies and payloads for missions to the Moon. Under the agreement, the CSA and Moon Express will explore the possibilities of using Moon Express lunar orbiter and lander.
why the moon
The Moon is Earth’s 8th continent, a new frontier for humanity with precious resources that can bring enormous benefits to life on Earth and our future in space. Expanding Earth’s economic and social sphere to the Moon is our first step in securing our future. Not long from now a new generation will look up and see lights on the Moon, and know that they are part of a multi-world species.
Distance from Earth to Moon
Gallons of Water in One Crater
Years to Deplete 1% of Moons Surface
The Moon is a new world with a total landmass approximating North and South America combined. The Moon has only been reached by government superpowers, but new advances in technology are bringing the Moon within reach of everyone. Soon we can all set sail as explorers to Earth’s 8th continent, seeking new knowledge, opportunity and adventure.
One of the greatest practical space discoveries of our generation is the presence of vast quantities of water on the Moon, verified by NASA in 2009. Water (H2O) not only supports life but its constituents hydrogen and oxygen can be used as rocket fuel. The discovery of water on the Moon is a game changer, not just for the economic viability of lunar resources, but for the economics of reaching Mars and other deep space destinations.
Like the Earth, the Moon has been enriched with vast resources through billions of years of asteroid bombardment. Unlike the Earth, these resources are largely on or near the lunar surface, relatively accessible. We are blazing a trail to the Moon to seek and harvest these resources to support a new space renaissance, where economic trade between countries will eventually become trade between worlds.
THREE MAIDEN EXPEDITIONS
Our maiden robotic expeditions to the Moon will redefine the possible by bringing the Moon within reach of everyone. Our robotic spacecraft systems will collapse the cost of access to the Moon, introduce a new commercial paradigm for government missions, democratize lunar research and exploration, and blaze the trail for commercial space transportation and exploration beyond Earth’s orbit.
