Ah got ya!

Hmm, i still think an anagram perhaps.

Nothing on Google anywhere, after that my methods of extraction run short! I guess i will just have to interview them for the answer :)

It's probably a Russian word for something, I just don't know Russian . . .

My guess....

Seleno ... Moon

Khod... Well Voskhod meant dawn or ascent.

So my best guess is that it approximates Moonrise.

Voskhod = Soviet human spaceflight programme

True :D
Selene is a lunar deity in Greek mythology and another name for the Moon of Earth. But "khod" has its origins from the famous Soviet Lunokhod program, rather than from Voskhod. Lunokhod is "moonwalker" in Russian, and this is exactly what we create.
We are proud of Lunokhod program and this was the main reason to choose Selenokhod name for our team.
