While the habitat is an experiment in itself, we want to share the opportunity with selected Space Researchers so they can test technologies, procedures and experiments in a full analogue mission.
That's why we have announced an Open Call for Experiments to allow universities, private companies and possibly high schools, to hitch a ride and get someone to handle their experiments for the duration of the mission.
Our expedition will focus on instruments and experiments relevant for human performance on Moon missions, controlled environment agriculture, and additive manufacturing. The experiments will be selected based on relevance and their ability to reflect a realistic sequence of activities. Inventors and researchers might benefit from studying the analogue as a model region for their Lunar counterparts, to evaluate human interface, usage, or experimental procedures.
Experiments must be self-funded, including hardware development, documentation, and transport of hardware to Copenhagen (Denmark). The hardware transfer between Copenhagen to the test site in Greenland will be organized by SAGA. All operations, energy requirements and maintenance will be carried out by one of the crewmembers.
