A new way in which the Moon Village Association (MVA) may contribute to humanity’s journey to the Moon is through the development and implementation of payloads to the lunar surface fostering global cooperation and inspiring the public.
In particular, the first MVA payload team has decided to develop a camera system mounted on a lunar lander. This camera system would look back at Earth with the goal to re-enact and renew the famous “Overview Effect”, as well as to be used for some scientific investigations. The Earth images will be accessible via the MVA website. In addition, the camera system will have a scientific sensor such as radiation sensor that can measure the radiation intensity at the surface of landing area; as well as seismic sensor for earth quack measurements; moreover, these sensors readings will be interpreted into “sound signals” which can be used as an exciting effect with the image to create more publicity “you can hear and see the lunar surface!”
For more information Please refer to :
It is anticipated that the imaging payload would be small and as simple as possible, so that it would be mounted on a lunar lander, planned during the next two years.
The Moon Village Association would like to invite individuals to participate in the development of this project that is now contemplating: definition, development, launch and operations of a lunar surface Earth-imaging payload.
This invitation is open to all individuals’ members worldwide, who has the experience in optoelectronic system design.
The Contribution requested in this call is VOLUNTARY BASED!
This position is NOT PAID!
