Supported by premier partner Boeing, major partners ispace and the Australian Space Agency and event supporters Defence SASASIC and Drone Deploy.


The mission

University students from across Australia and around the globe will battle it out in a full-scale Lunar mission, using semi-autonomous rovers that they have designed and built themselves.

Competitors will showcase their skills in a simulated lunar environment to complete navigation, resource and construction tasks.
