The Aqualunar Challenge, UK

The Aqualunar Challenge is a £1.2m international challenge prize focused on making human habitation in space possible by finding ways to purify water buried beneath the Moon’s surface.

This is being delivered by Challenge Works on behalf of the UK Space Agency in the UK, and by the Canadian Space Agency in partnership with Impact Canada.

The UK track of the Aqualunar Challenge will reward UK-led water purification innovations that will benefit both Earth and Space.

We need your help to pioneer technology and innovation that will purify water on the moon. 

Applications close 3pm BST on 8 April 2024
