How did you become involved in the team?

Dreams, only dreams, and nothing more than dreams brought me to the Google Lunar XPRIZE competitions. And a competition is a competition. Goal - to win! Everybody has different tricks in there sleeves. I have two – design book (let say blueprints) from Boris Chertok, and knowledge how to apply the software to old ideas. To twist a little bit and to prove that the software today is main, major, prime part of any invention, all development in out team free to share, to remix, to use commercial, in a conditions that after transform, or build upon development results will be distributed with the same way: free to share, to remix and etc. (in software it is named recursive function!).

About

"Team B” is an initiative from privately funded Canadian company Adobri Solutions Ltd. Our mission is to utilize existing technologies in software, microprocessors, communication, guidance and robotic systems to produce small weight vehicle capable of traveling to and transmitting data to/from the moon surface. Delivery of a vehicle to Lunar surface planned by a probe/craft with fixed impulses engines. Main weight target on low-earth orbit for a probe and vehicle total is 100-150 kg. Flight schema will include two orbit correction impulses, one main and one brake impulse with direct arrival to the moon surface and soft landing with air-bags assistance. Designed and manufactured vehicle/craft must pass thermal, mechanical, vacuum’s ground tests prior making launch arrangements. Two launches are planned to succeed in winning the Google Lunar X PRIZE. Results, mistakes in design, errors in calculation, and bugs in software on first mission will give valuable input for the second craft/probe re-design and second launch planed 9 month after. As for a media attraction event our Canadian “Team B” is considering to deliver to the lunar surface a hockey ice puck to make a symbolic face-off on the Moon.
