Australia, we’re going to the Moon. The Australian Space Agency wants to bring the nation on its boldest adventure yet.
You have the chance to be part of history, with the opportunity to name Australia’s lunar rover.
The Australian Space Agency, in partnership with NASA, is working with Australia’s space industry to design and build an Australian-made rover. It’s part of the Trailblazer program under the Moon to Mars initiative.
Drawing on Australia’s world-leading remote operations expertise, the rover will collect lunar soil, known as regolith. NASA will attempt to extract oxygen from the sample. This is a key step towards a sustainable human presence on the Moon.
The rover will go to the Moon as part of a future Artemis mission by as early as 2026.
