Penn State Outreach Readiness Institute: Hope Moon Shot – Jan 22

Posted by Penn State Outreach on January 12, 2021

The Readiness Institute at Penn State is embarking on a mission to help foster hope among people around the world.  Students, educators and members of the global community are invited to share messages of hope — for free — that will be included aboard a mission to the moon. The hopes will be saved on an SD card and will be placed in a storage capsule that will be sent to the moon’s surface by Astrobotic, a Pittsburgh-based space robotics company.

To be a part of the Hope Moonshot mission, submit hopes before January 22, 2021. Participants will have an opportunity to receive mission updates, images and attend a virtual launch party in the second half of 2021. Lesson plans also are available for educators.
