Andrew Barton sends word that the Google Lunar X PRIZE team “White Label Space” have released their mission Concept:

After many months of work we are finally ready to release our first major technical description of our Google Lunar X PRIZE mission. We call it the Mission Concept Summary and it is available for download on the web at:

The Mission Concept Summary reports on the results of our conceptual design study, which was based on the Basic GLXP Mission Guidelines.

The primary goals of the study were to:

• Provide a baseline mission concept, including launcher selection and mission analysis for the lunar transfer, descent & landing
• Define the Space Segment elements
• Identify the critical technologies

As you will see from recent blog posts, we are still growing our team. If you have particular skills in space engineering or your organization is interested in becoming an Official Partner of White Label Space, please send an email to:system@whitelabelspace.com

If you are interested in sending a non-GLXP payload to the surface of the Moon, we would like to study your interface and design requirements so please send an email to: payloads@whitelabelspace.com

About

Team White Label Space was formed back in early 2008 by a group of experienced space professionals inspired by the challenge of the Google Lunar X PRIZE. With a strong background in space engineering and knowledge of the costs involved, the group realized that there were numerous global companies that could finance a Google Lunar X PRIZE mission with less than 10% of their yearly advertising expenditure.
