A Lunar Life Odyssey represents humankind's passion for breaking earthly boundaries to explore the solar system moving to, from, and around the Moon. NASA is seeking the capabilities to transport us there, create, and sustain a permanent habitat, and use lunar exploration to seek and discover new knowledge and opportunities.
There are so many challenges in our odyssey, and we know that it is going to take many minds and ideas to achieve our goals. We need ideas that can help us reduce the supplies we send, improve reliability for secure communication systems, better protection from radiation, ways to avoid damage from lunar dust, and systems that can help us navigate precision landings as well as crewed and uncrewed lunar surface transport while avoiding hazards.
To compete in this challenge, submit an idea that will assist NASA with sustaining a human presence to, from and around the Moon by helping to overcome the challenges posed by such a difficult environment, including lunar dust, extreme temperatures, lunar resource mining, resource reusability, energy harvesting and management, surface transportation, in-space manufacturing, communications, etc.
