Barcelona Moon Team
Barcelona Moon Team is a multidisciplinary joint venture bringing together Spanish entrepreneurial, industrial and academic capabilities. Headquartered in Barcelona, we are the first Spain-based team to enter the competition and through our official participation in the Google Lunar XPRIZE, we want to promote collaboration between the Spanish Aerospace industry, academia and the whole of society, for the Google Lunar XPRIZE is an amazing project that poses new challenges and fosters enthusiasm in a growing industry such as the Catalan and Spanish aerospace sector.
The price must be considered a stimulus, for the budget can be even higher than those $30M, but the real goal, for us, is to develop steps and synergies for longer term plans for an appropriate exploitation of space.
“Our team wants to promote, in accordance with the reality of the sector, a widening involvement of private initiative in the development of space technology and industry, also including sectors such as exploration and tourism,” says Xavier Claramunt, President of Galactic Suite Moonrace and team leader.
