SPACEHACK LUXEMBOURG 2021 FOCUSES ON FUTURE LUNAR COLONY
SpaceHack Luxembourg looks to design solutions for a future lunar colony
Between Friday 12 and Sunday 14 November 2021 teams of space-related professionals and international university/doctoral students will compete to design innovative concepts that could be deployed for a Lunar Colony in the Year 2040.
Participants will be invited to work on the following primary domains of a Lunar Colony Architecture:
Lunar Space Access (lunar orbit-to-surface transportation for crew and cargo)
Lunar Observation & Communication (remote sensing, PNT, IoT)
Lunar Habitation (habitats manufacturing, construction, farming, sustainable life support solutions)
Lunar Power (production, storage, distribution of power to support)
Lunar Orbital Services (satellite repair, debris, orbital refueling, orbital manufacturing)
The competing teams are invited the following hackathon process steps:
Explore the topic together with expert coaches and issue ideas
Deﬁne solutions to turn the ideas into concepts
Design applicable functional concepts and solutions
Créaction is pleased to support the event through their PUSH-GR Interreg project with their CEO, Jean-Paul Henry, recruited to the coaching team.
The winning team will receive support for concept prototyping within a Concurrent Design Facility. In the 3 months following the hackathon the team will be offered coaching sessions by selected coaches and experts in order to deliver a Project Design Report, including a detailed executable use case, road map, and strategic plan of a lunar colony. In addition each team member will receive a 300€ voucher. The second prize consists of a 200€ voucher for each team member, while the third prize features a 100€ voucher per team member.
The award ceremony takes place on 18 November at the Technoport in Esch/Belval.
