Open Moon Design Commoonity

Introducing the Open Moon Design Commoonity.
Anna is talking about her commoonity´s activities and what they are working on:
Lunik & Ranger are on the way…

The President of the International Space University, Michael Simpson,
gave a the GLXP-Teams a warm welcome speech at the Summit.

It was lunchtime, but there was no pausing…I hesitated to release this clip
…but my commoonity stated, this is Youtube Art.
What do you think?

The Pomerantz Report

William Pomerantz, Senior Director, Space Prizes | X PRIZE Foundation
summarizes the GLXP Summit on the Isle of Man,
featuring an interview with Open Moon:

Open Moon Activity

Past weeks were busy ones for Open Moon. We ran a booth on LinuxTag in Berlin and a Breakout Session on Future Forum Dresden as well and sent a competent EVA team to the ILA 2010. Our efforts have been rewarded: Commoonities are growing and the project is gaining speed.

Here is our updated official booklet

and some clips and fotos of our events:

A small reel showing the modified moon rover `c-rove´ performing some lunar action. This animation was on display on our booth at LinuxTag 2010 in Berlin and generated a lot of interest.

Open Moon Design Comoonity is just experimenting with 3D-animations. This is the first test. Please be sure to use anaglyph red(left) cyan(right) glasses to watch this clip correctly.

Open Moon EVA-Team´s visit on Internationale Luft- und Raumfahrtausstellung Berlin
brought us this Photo Album.

“Last, but not least”: A summarize of Open Moon´s Breakout Session “Community into Space” by Ranga Yogeshwar, host of the Future Forum Dresden.

Extraterrestrial support!

Our team was unexpectedly added up.

Lunik (green) and Ranger (blue) are our new mascots!

They will guide us the right way up to the stars! We say `Yeah, welcome!`

Our new heroes are named after the first russian and american probe landed on moon. On 1959/09/13 Lunik was the first artificial device ever touching lunar surface. Ranger followed on 1962/04/26 with a touchdown on the dark side of the moon.
