The main theme of this edition is the future Lunar settlement foundations
The context: Imagine it is the year 2040. An international space colony exists on the moon which houses 50 inhabitants (scientists, engineers, etc) at all times and is planned to be expanded to 1000 people capacity in next 10 years.
The objective: Design a Lunar Colony in the Year 2040 Designing, through new space ventures, the future Lunar activities and critical systems & infrastructures (Power/ Resources/ Robotics/ Habitat/ Food/ Waste /Health) ideally having a double impact within lunar and terrestrial applications.
Participants will be invited to work on the following primary domains of a Lunar Colony Architecture:
The participating teams will follow these hackathon process steps:
As participating team, you will contribute to designing the future Lunar settlement foundations.
You will enhance your entrepreneurial & innovation management practices through experiential learning, network with industry experts and newspace players from the Greater Region, and potentially win awesome prizes.
The winning team receives support for concept prototyping within a Concurrent Design Facility. In the 3 months following the hackathon the team will get coaching sessions by selected coaches & experts to deliver a Project Design Report including a detailed executable use case, road map, and strategic plan of a lunar colony. 300€ voucher per team member
