Science + commerce = Robus
Robus-1 is about research and exploration. Conceived by private enterprise to enable universities and space programs to reach the Moon, that is our goal.
- Robus-1 will host up to five rovers the size of the Mars rover, Opportunity.
- Each participant will build their own rover to execute their unique scientific mission.
- Robus-1 provides mission management, transportation, and logistics.
- Learn more about the current concept, calculated payload capacity, and rover device delivery method.
By reducing space travel costs, our mission aims to put lunar research within reach of smaller space programs and universities. Consider researching development of water location and extraction techniques or regolith management experimentation.
Observatory-friendly, the natural environment of the Moon provides a multitude of distinct advantages for reflector and radio telescopes. For example, the far side is shielded from Earth’s radio noise allowing detection of faint radio noise signals.
NASA and other research organizations have confirmed the presence of water in polar craters, increasing the feasibility of long-term lunar habitation. The Moon could be a critical first- stop supply station resource for long-duration, interplanetary journeys.
