A Shared Ride to the Moon

The Robus-1mission is designed to place a large robotic lander on the Moon at a comparatively low cost per kilogram.
Lowering the cost of lunar access allows research and exploration in totally new areas and could be a 
precursor to manned missions.

Space bus

Like a bus, the Robus-1 mission joins together several research and exploration projects to lower the expense of transportation to the Moon.

Our nearest satellite

Just a few days away, there are millions of rocks to look under and new vistas to see.  Robus-1 brings all this within reach for many universities and space programs.

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.

The Robus-1 Lander

  • 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.

RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES

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.

THE MOON AS AN OBSERVATORY

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.

RESSOURCE AVAILABILITY

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.
