European Student Moon Orbiter (ESMO)

European Student Moon Orbiter (ESMO) is an education satellite project of the ESA's (European Space Agency) Education Office, and if successful it will be the first ever student-built spacecraft to leave Earth orbit and achieve an orbit around another solar system body

ESMO represents a unique and inspirational opportunity for university students, providing them with valuable and challenging hands-on space project experience in order to fully prepare a well qualified workforce for future ESA missions in the next decades. In addition, ESMO has a powerful education outreach aspect and strong attraction for students across Europe, by lowering the entry-level for lunar exploration to attainable university project activities. ESMO also represents an opportunity for students to contribute to the scientific knowledge and future European exploration of the Moon by returning new data and testing new technologies
