Puli to the Moon!


A young and ambitious Hungarian team has embarked on a mission to fulfill the challenge of the Google Lunar XPRIZE – a $40 million international competition – and send a rover to the Moon. The challenge is great, but it is technically feasible. Team Puli is working full speed since June 2010. In the meantime we have managed to collect the required $50 000 registration fee for the competiton and  we are continously working on creating our rovers and broadening our educational program. All scientists, engineers and other professionals taking part in the project do currently this voluntarily, however for a successful mission we need to invest in a large amount of equipment and have to provide funds for various other costs.

Currently we are working on the project Iteration 3 which will result in a space-grade protoflight rover. In our earlier work we laid down the "nervous system" of our Moon mission,  and, in the sense of the Hunveyor program, the same time we developed prototypes of our Puli rovers. Our systems were successfully tested in the Moroccan desert (2013 February) and on the slopes of Mauna Kea, one of the best Moon analog field test facilities (2013 December).

Become part of our mission!

Join the Small Step Club!Our Small Step Club is a continuously growing group of individuals who support the launch of the Puli with a little contribution: e.g., with the equivalent of your two working hours salary, but at least 1,000 HUF (which is about 4 EUR or 5 USD). This might be a small amount for a man, but the united effort creates a fantastic opportunity for the Puli to write history.

All club members also become Venture Sponsors, whose names will be carried by the Puli to the Moon. Members of the Small Step Club will also receive a personal certificate, and the first 15.000 people – if our mission will succeed – a unique photograph of the lunar surface.
