Moon Minute: Synergy Moon – A Coalition of Dreams
Team Synergy Moon – one of the five finalist teams in the Google Lunar XPRIZE competition (alongside SpaceIL, Moon Express, TeamIndus, and HAKUTO) – is a team built on a constellation of international people, dreamers, builders and artists from all over the world.
And so, it’s only fitting that the team has formed a partnership with four former GLXP teams: Stellar, Omega Envoy, SpaceMeta and Independence-X.
Hailing from Croatia, the United States, Brazil, and Malaysia, the four former competitors are no longer in the Google Lunar XPRIZE as official teams, but they’ll still be a part of team Synergy Moon’s mission!
Representing South America, Asia, North America, and Europe, it’s a remarkable accomplishment to have such a unified global effort for space exploration all together on one mission to the “eighth continent,” the Moon.
All four of these former teams, as well as Synergy Moon, were featured in episode 9 of “Moon Shot,” directed by Oscar-winner Orlando von Einsiedel (“The White Helmets”), and produced by J.J. Abrams (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” “Westworld”).
Catch the episode below to meet the teams, and stay tuned to see what adventures this grand coalition embarks on as they approach a Moon launch later this year!
