Participate in Moon Rover Landing through Remote Rover Experiment Project
Although scientists are trying to make it possible that every man on this planet can get to walk on the moon, but that day is still too far away to be realized. But what you can actually get to do is to be a part of a science project for the moon. Even that bit is too exciting as not every can boast about the same participation. The team of scientists called the Part-Time Scientists (PTS) have come up with the Remote Rover Experiment (RRE), which allows people to participate in a space programme.
You can be part of the testing of the technology which will be sent to the moon. You can remote-pilot an Asimov R3A moon rover which has been modeled after the Apollo 17 landing site and can also buy self-assembly kit of an Asimov R0 moon rover. For the science enthusiasts who can afford to pay for it, the participation can be done through RRE Kickstarter campaign. The campaign needs a minimum of $100,000 to launch off by August 23 this year. The funds collected will be spent in the construction of the artificial lunar surface and the moon lander. The pilots can get to choose between the “Commander” mode or an “Explorer” mode.
The ones who would complete it will get a test-pilot certification. This is just one amongst many thought-of experiments where space enthusiasts want people who are not part of big-budget projects and space programmes can also get to feel and participate in things to do with space. This project is just one of such kind, but there might be many more of these if it becomes successful in gathering enough support, both financial and moral.
