The day Google Lunar X Prize was announced in 2007 at the X Prize Cup, I could see the promise of Moon 2.0. The ideas of so many around the world will play a huge roll in moving civilization off planet to develop our two world system. What a time to be alive!

InterPlanetary Ventures, the Human Synergy Project, and Interorbital Systems have joined forces to become SYNERGY MOON, the newest team to enter the Google Lunar X PRIZE race to the Moon. With working groups in 15 countries, the SYNERGY MOON team actively promotes international cooperation in space exploration and development. SYNERGY MOON will use a lunar-direct launch of an Interorbital Systems’ modular NEPTUNE rocket to carry a lunar lander and at least one rover to the surface of the Moon before the end of 2012. That rover will, at a minimum, travel 500 meters across the lunar surface, and transmit video, images, and data back to Earth. SYNERGY MOON will prove that an international, private-sector team can do what has never been done before: move private enterprise into space beyond Earth orbit.

California Space Authority Board Member Celeste Volz Ford commented on the link between science and the humanities, "For the space enterprise community to maintain its edge in the global space market, our future workforce is going to consist of engineers who think like artists and artists who think like engineers.” Speaking on the future of space exploration, Nicolas Peter, a research fellow at the European Space Policy Institute, commented “This adventure will be driven primarily by a quest for knowledge, involving not only the hard sciences, but arts and humanities as well.” The SYNERGY MOON team is unique in that its members personify an eccentric, electrifying merge of the arts and sciences

SYNERGY MOON is an eccentric, electrifying merge of the arts and sciences. We represent a collaboration of individuals from over 15 countries and our numbers are growing. We are an official team in the Google Lunar X PRIZE, and also pioneers in human space travel and interplanetary exploration. Our technological innovations will make manned orbital travel, personal satellite launches, and Solar System colonization cost-effective, and above all, possible for everyone. Through aerospace research and development, rocket launch services, and a wide range of public events and awareness campaigns, we aim to inspire and invigorate humanity's desire to explore the Moon, Mars, and space beyond.

Our spirit is one of social entrepreneur meets extreme adventurer, approaching the world with the creative drive of an artist and the problem solving skills of an engineer. Our company growth plan involves both private sector funding and the unique inclusion of high profile sponsorship opportunities for some of the world's top brands ready to get their message out on a global scale. We encourage international, interdisciplinary collaborations and innovation as we bring together and induce a fusion of space, art, and humanity, coalescing for on the ground beneficial change for the whole of the human family.

Beyond our mission to win the Google Lunar X PRIZE competition we are also working toward the development of a suite of space exploration and adventuring technologies and service offerings. These are all intended to bring space closer to humanity. This includes our membership program, educational & entertaining public events, outreach campaigns and the inclusion of the arts in new and imaginative ways.

The history of SYNERGY MOON is the coming together of two organizations, Human Synergy Project and Interplanetary Ventures. These two organizations entered the Google Lunar X PRIZE competition and shortly after partnered with Interorbital Systems and RPC Telecommunications, thus creating SYNERGY MOON.
