Our nanoform technology has officially been selected to travel to the moon.

Carnegie Mellon's University's Moon Arts Ark is taking 16 nanoforms on board for its moon trip this summer.

After weeks (months!) of considerations, Carnegie Mellon University has selected our nanoforms to travel to the moon. The university's Moon Arts Ark project has been carefully crafted for years. This ambitious project was recently awarded 1 million dollars by Google Lunar X Prize for successfully achieving the technical goals set for its lunar landing system (this is the third Milestone Prize won by Carnegie Mellon University and Astrorobotic!)

Artwork and Humanity for billions of years

Along with technological innovation, the Moon Arts Ark brings a deeply human and artistic meaning to moon travels. Artwork on the themes of Earth, Metasphere, Moon and Ether will be carried to the moon by Astrorobotic's Robot, "Andy". The Art pieces will be encapsuled in nanoforms in order to stay on the moon until... Martians find it?

More on the topic very soon...
