Lunar Lion Crowdfunding Campaign
On January 20th, the Lunar Lion Team launched a crowdfunding campaign at rockethub.com/lunarlionpsu . Supporters for the program have ranged from the average individual to television Network A&E which donated $10,000 to the campaign. Their contribution was matched by a Company Called Moon Base Builders (based out of Portland Oregon). What was surprising about the individual contributions was that the team saw support from places as far off as the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. Next week, we will hit our mid-way point in the campaign, but we can already say that the support we have seen so far has been incredible.
Past our Feb 25th deadline for our crowdfunding campaign, the Lunar Lion Team will continue to move forward with its mission, but will do so knowing that our team has grown from about 80 students, researchers, and professors at Penn State to hundreds of people around the world. If you would like to join our team and mission to the moon, please spread the word about our social media outlets FB/Twitter @LunarLionPSU and rockethub.com/lunarlionpsu.
