[Photos] Lunar Lion Debuts New Mission Headquarters
The Lunar Lion team, Penn State’s student-led mission to the moon, debuted its new “mission headquarters” yesterday morning, highlighted by a ribbon-cutting ceremony with university president Eric Barron.
The headquarters, entirely student-designed, will be used by the team to develop and build its prototype rocket thrusters and moon landers. Relative to the team’s prior workspace, the mission headquarters is more spacious, located in a more accessible part of campus, and can better support multiple kinds of prototype testing, according to outgoing student team president JP Muncks.
Also important: the Lunar Lion’s new workspace features a SICK mural, painted by student and team member Kara Morgan, as well as a life-sized mock up of the lander that Penn State is hoping to put on the moon by the end of 2015. You can contribute to the effort here, as Lunar Lion is still in need of more funding to make the trip happen.
