Moon Roundup: The Romans

Moon Roundup: The Romans

Teams from around the old Roman Empire show off the latest in Moon technology.

This week, in the Google Lunar XPRIZE...

ARCA made progress on its Executor rocket engine.

It was a showcase of lunar (and Roman) proportions, as teams from around the Mediterranean (roughly) showed off the latest in their technology achievements...


Barcelona Moon  shared new images of their lander and rover:


While the cabin for ARCA 's supersonic plane went on display in Romania (complete with a model of the plane next to it):

As they also completed the manufacturing on an important rocket engine test tank:


Meanwhile, Italia  posted a new video of its spider-bot coming to life:

Tel Aviv

And from Israel, SpaceIL  revealed a new "Game of Fuel" competition amongst their engineers:

Where they'll be coming up with different ways to bring down the fuel costs for their mission. (Hopefully it's not "you win or you die" like the 'Game of Thrones' the logo is borrowed from!)

Honorable Mentions:


I'll be rounding these up every week, so keep an eye here for the latest developments from the moon race!
